Industry Moves: Cyrus Krohn Returns To Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Krohn previously worked at Microsoft from 1996 through 2005, succeeding Moore 
| as publisher of Slate.com and working for him at MSN Video. When Moore moved 
| to Yahoo in 2005, Krohn soon followed. He left Yahoo in 2007 to head digital 
| campaigning for the RNC, departing that role in early March. The Washington 
| Post described his resignation as “an especially heavy blow—not just to the 
| RNC, but to the conservative blogosphere.”

OVP Invests $1.5M in Cloud Data Storage Startup, Symform

,----[ Quote ]
| Seattle-based Symform, a small company that provides data storage and backup 
| in the Internet cloud, is announcing today a $1.5 million Series A financing 
| from OVP Venture Partners in Kirkland, WA. This is the first new investment 
| OVP has announced this year; the firm made six follow-on investments last 
| quarter. Managing directors Mark Ashida and Lucinda Stewart are joining 
| Symform’s board.     
| As for Symform, the young startup we profiled back in February, it’s a 
| significant step forward. The company was founded in late 2007 by 
| ex-Microsoft veterans Praerit Garg and Bassam Tabbara, and has been 
| developing its product for the past year and a half.

| Microsoft has been so cagey about the candidates it plans to nominate to 
| Yahoo!'s board that speculation is mounting that the software giant actually 
| doesn't have anyone lined up.  
| [...]
| Also holding people back is the worry that if negotiations turn nasty, 
| would-be nominees, by being part of a hostile takeover attempt, risk 
| alienating both Yahoo! insiders and others who are aligned with the search 
| giant.
