This message just arrived from Kevin Oakes, CEO of Click2Learn:
Today, we announced that Click2learn (NASDAQ: CLKS) and Docent (NASDAQ: DCNT) have agreed to form a new company in a merger of equals transaction. The combination will bring together two of the strongest and most innovative business performance and learning management software companies to create a single company well positioned for long-term global leadership.
Congratulations, Kevin! And hats off to all my pals at Docent!
I'm much too tactful to comment on inter-faith marriages until after the reception, so Mazeltov! With rich uncles like Accenture, Deloitte, Exult, IBM, Microsoft, NEC, Primedia, Thomson Learning, and Paul Allen, this couple could go far.
Rather than the bride taking the groom's name, or vice-versa, this is a wonderful opportunity for both of the newlyweds to drop their dorky names. "Docent" reeks of academia and musty museums. "Click2Learn" has that old unblended, dot-com feel. Maybe rename the company "Aspen," move everything up to Washington State, and make a tree the logo.
About a dozen years ago, I arrived in the Sierra south of Lake Tahoe just as the aspens were turning from dark green to brilliant yellow. Walking in the hills next to Sorenson's Lodge, I was surrounded by white-barked trees that resembled surreal torches.
