I just read this over on Todd Bishop's blog
It looks like Microsoft employees driving past downtown Bellevue to Redmond will soon be able to gaze upon a big "Yahoo!" sign, if they're so inclined. Yahoo has signed a lease for 115,000 square feet in Bellevue's One Twelfth @ Twelfth complex. The space, to be occupied in stages over the next year, would give Yahoo enough room for 500 to 600 employees.
This is perfect. I was holding back on my latest idea for the deciding supremacy in the search wars, but now seems like the right moment to put it out there: Trial by Combat. Or, football (soccer) to be precise. I think that next year we should hold a 3 team competition: Google v Yahoo v Microsoft. Everyone will be a home team, so no turf advantages.
