Podcast: AOL gets social with Bebo, Microhoo talks and Semantic Web progress

This week on EIC Squared podcast, ZDNet Editor in Chief Larry Dignan and I discuss the big news of the week, from AOL and Bebo to Eliot Spitzer and Microhoo.

This week on the EIC Squared podcast Larry Dignan and I discuss the merits of AOL's $850 million Bebo acquisition and the status of Microsoft's pursuit of Yahoo. Apparently the Microsoft and Yahoo are holding informal talks. The general consensus among industry watchers is that Yahoo should take the money and run, especially if its first quarter earnings are going to disappoint Wall Street. Larry explains the role IT played in helping to turn Eliot Spitzer into an ex-governor of New York, and I outline the latest developments in the Semantic Web , including Yahoo's efforts in this emerging area.
