Yahoo board considering $1.1 billion Tumblr buyout

Yahoo has been mulling some kind of deal with the hip New York-based blogging site, from a strategic investment to an outright acquisition. Sources said that the Silicon Valley Internet giant’s CEO Marissa Mayer has decided that buying Tumblr was going to be “the stake in the ground of what her strategy is going forward for Yahoo.”

This would be very interesting.

      I wonder how much shares Marco has. Even if it is only a tenth of a percent it would be around a cool million $. And with 1% or more, yes, M5 for everyone!
