Arrington's Dream Deferred

May 15, 2008 Filed under: CBS

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up  like a raisin in the sun?  Or fester like a sore--  And then run?  Does it stink like rotten meat?  Or crust and sugar over--  like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags  like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

- A Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes


All for not!

Remember how Michael Arrington had big big plans to take over the digital media world by buying Alley Insider, Center Networks, and yours truly  (well...;) then only to turn around and buy CNET?! He could rule the Internets worlds!!!

Well, looks like CBS just bought CNET for $1.8 billion, a 45% premium on its closing price of last night.

So, where will Arrington go now? Will he dry up like a raisin in the sun?
