rumour had Dossett leaving his position as executive producer and general manager for the MSN Media Network to join Yahoo in mid-September, but a Microsoft rep denied the news, saying only that Dossett would “seek other opportunities within Microsoft.”

Now might seem to be an odd time to join Yahoo. But Dossett isn’t known for his caution, having taken two years off to climb the highest peaks on each of the seven continents, including Mount Everest in 2004.
