Icahn Announces Proxy Bid for Technorati 100

Carl Icahn’s a busy guy–busier than usual lately penning broadsides against Yahoo (YHOO). So he can be forgiven the 138-day delay in lauching “Icahn Report,” the blog he announced back in February, and subsequently failed to debut in April.

Earlier today the blog offered nothing more than a placeholder page, but a few moments ago it went live with Icahn’s promised anecdotes on “the desultory state of corporate governance in America.”

And, specifically, Yahoo.

Which seems to figure in many of Icahn’s first few posts–though the company is never mentioned by name.

Unfit CEOs. Absurd poison pills. Absurd board elections. It’s pretty clear to whom Icahn is referring, isn’t it? Presumably he’s had his site admins ban Yahoo’s IP address from the blog. I’m told comment spam can be a real nightmare.
