Liveblogging From Yahoo Annual Meeting: Tim Koogle Returns!

While looking for news, any news, at Yahoo’s annual meeting in San Jose this morning, who should tap BoomTown on the shoulder but a blast-from-the-past Yahoo, former CEO Tim Koogle.

Koogle still has about 10 shares of the stock apparently, and I am not entirely clear why he is here, though I will surely find out what’s what.

But Koogle looks fabulous.

Also in attendance, besides various members of the Yahoo (YHOO) board and, of course, CEO Jerry Yang (he also looks fabulous, but rejected my effort to put Yahoo crisis PR dandy Adam Miller’s silk pocket square in his blue blazer for a little panache).

Also: Yahoo’s other Co-Founder, David Filo, President Sue Decker and 3,367 PR staffers (presumably here to make sure the press does not rush the stage in order to make some news).
