Reading Jerry Yang's body language on Microsoft

Yahoo's CEO submits to his first in-depth public grilling since "Microhoo" entered the lexicon four months ago. But the subtext to his answers is more revealing than what he says.

Jerry Yang and Sue Decker, Yahoo's top two executives, took the stage earlier this week at the D Conference organized by the Wall Street Journal. Naturally, they were guarded in what they had to say about a possible sale--in full or part--to Microsoft. But the tone and content of their comments was illuminating in unexpected ways. Earlier on Friday, I had a chance to chat about their appearance with Dan Farber, who was part of our team of reporters covering the conference.
