In this week's EIC squared podcast Dan and I talk Microhoo, the latest from the One Laptop Per Child project and Twitter's business model--assuming it can stay up long enough.

Another EIC podcast first--Dan and I--were actually in the same studio. Go figure.

On the Microhoo saga, Dan riffed on Microsoft's intentions for Yahoo, noted that the deal is about more than search and talked a little shareholder value. The big question: Will Microsoft do a weekend announcement over a long Memorial Day holiday?

Meanwhile, the OLPC unveiled its XO-2--an e-bookish type gadget. The goal is to get the price down to $75. Can the OLPC actually deliver it given some of the upheaval behind the scenes?

And finally Dan has Twitter's business model all figured out. Meanwhile, I talked to an expert about Ruby on Rails, which has gotten a bad rap due to Twitter passage.
