What Happens After Yahoo Acquires You

Matt Linderman:

Is this the future fate faced by most acquired tech companies? Is the cash worth it to founders who have to watch their creations slowly decline into obsolescence? Is freedom better than building and honing a big, popular product? When a company is bought, does it deserve acquisition congratulations or condolences?

Depressing, but it’s not clear to me that Yahoo is an outlier here.
