As everyone knows, Carl Icahn launched his own blog IcahnReport.com recently, though after a few early posts on subjects like 'myth of corporate democracy' and the 'absurdity of the staggered board' he's been pretty quiet. It's not surprising most blogs die off pretty quickly, and they're hard work to keep up. Notably absent from his posts: any mention of the Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) fight. Today he has a post up though explaining why he hasn't been talking about it. It's basically because of SEC stuff. In fact, he even had to file the contents of this post with the SEC (all very circular and recursive). He does say, though, that he will talk about the company's management, and invites readers to subscribe to his RSS feed. Of course, as WSJ's Deal Journal noted a couple of weeks ago: given all his filings and letters, the SEC is Carl Icahn's real blog.
