Mary Jo Foley jokingly revived the Microsoft-Yahoo! merger speculation today by noting that Terry Semel is a keynote speaker at Microsoft's Strategic Account Summit, an advertising schmoozathon the company is holding next week in Seattle.
Semel's giving an "industry report" on Wednesday, then doing a Q&A with MSN veep Joanne Bradford. Bill Gates speaks to the group Tuesday.
Semel will probably yack with Microsoft biggies during his visit, but a summit appearance doesn't necessarily mean a merger is in the works -- two years ago, Microsoft's featured speaker was Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and Semel spoke in 2004.
