Microsoft’s $6 billion conversation topic

Microsoft didn’t say much about the timing of today’s deal with aQuantive, but I wonder if it hustled to get it done before two big investor events where its online executives are speaking next week.

Instead of defending its trailing position in recent years, it can point investors forward toward the possibilities of the big merger.

Maybe it’ll even drop a few more details about their aQuantive plans.

First up is Steve Berkowitz, senior vice president of the online services group. He’s presenting to the JP Morgan Technology Conference on Tuesday.

Then Yusuf Mehdi, the senior vice president leading aQuantive integration, will speak Wednesday at the Goldman Sachs Internet Conference.
