Mega Merger Mania

There is a bigger picture observation to be made in the wake of the AT&T and Time Warner merger/acquisition. It is an observation a long time coming as we have observed a number of larger merger/acquisitions already go down in the semiconductor industry with even more coming. I have continually been predicting the consolidation of the semiconductor industry and others have been making similar predictions about the media industry. It is worth looking at why this is happening and will continue to happen and what that may mean going forward for startups.
