Futurist Esther Dyson catches Yahoo senior veep Toby Coppel chatting with Facebook veep and general counsel Chris Kelly. "What are they cooking up now," she asks. Oh Esther, you mischevious darling, why must you tease us so?
Let's see — Toby's holding the water, while Chris seems to be holding a plastic cup — beer or iced tea? Therein lies the secret, folks. Beer means somebody's re-thinking that $2 billion figure.
Note to Esther: Bounce flash or ambient lighting will make those indoor shots more flattering. No one wants to make Toby Coppel look pasty.
