First, allow me to apologize personally for the stock price. Anything that I invest in the WSJ likes to put a negative top spin on. That's all right though, as I repeatedly laugh all the way to the bank on their short-sighted "wisdom."After the pandamonium settles down, there is good news to this merger.This isn't really any different (other than size and market focus) than the previous mergers. Becoming part of a company with a better mid-range business is complimentary. If the new company takes advantage of the accounting and overhead administration synergies that USWEB/CKS is already famous for, then we'll be doing great.As to the "integration" of their different markets/styles, it seems as though they will be content focusing their efforts on their own directions, and only making synergies in such areas as warrant it.This is also a good step as there are many ad firms, computer firms, and start-ups that were biting on USWEb's heels. This will reinforce USWEB as the dominant powerhouse in e-commerce site development.If the deal goes through as indicated, USWeb shareholders will do very well by the deal.
