Speaking at Microsoft’s analyst meeting, company ad czar Brian McAndrews said he’s asked all the time about the proliferation of online ad networks.

“There’s going to be a tremendous amount of consolidation,” he said.
No wonder so many venture-backed startups have turned themselves into ad networks in the past year or two.
I’ll bet they’re all waiting for the Yahoo drama to end, so Microsoft and Google can start shopping.
