Alot of the discussion of the Microsoft bid for Yahoo has centered on the impact this will have on reducing the number of acquirors for venture backed startups.
I tend not to find this such a dark cloud, primarily for the reason that there are lots of acquirors out there for digital media companies, above and beyond the portals. Such as major media companies like News Corp, Viacom, Disney and CBS.
Marc Andreesen has a good post on the topic. He agrees with me 🙂
