Listening to the Gillmor Gang

Filed under: Internet; Author: Les Bain; Posted: May 4, 2008 at 4:08 pm;

Listing to the Gillmor Gang discuss the Microsoft – Yahoo deal that fell through. There is the standard list of pundits on the call. They do not agree.

I cannot help but think of the political pundit shows. There we know what position pundits are going to take depending on their party and the candidate they support. They are spinners.

With this crowd, you never really know who is going to take what position, but there are certain perspectives that are predictable.

  • Robert Scoble will talk about the employees at the companies involved.
  • If Jason Calacanis was on the call, he would say the deal can be understood by looking how much the deal would add to search & online advertising.
  • Mike Arrington will call out someone else on the phone call.
  • Dan Farber will have the broadest industry view, and include in the analysis companies that are not directly affected.
  • Doc Searls adds the humor.  Are you on Twitter, or “some other drug”.
  • Steve Gillmor makes it happen – enough said.
