I don’t think that makes sense if a good offer is on the table…which I think it is.
I like Dave Winer’s post the best . His contention is it’s all about the ‘balls’ that Facebook has. Not as good as mine, but good :) . I still think Coke (or Pepsi for that matter) should come in this weekend and up Microsoft.
