At last week’s Silicon Alley 100 party, we heard a little nugget of gossip on private equity group Silver Lake, and its interest in Yahoo.Apparently, the PE group is taking meetings with tech executives to learn more about Yahoo and whether or not its salvageable.

One source, who knew about these meetings, told us, “My gut is Silver Lake does something.” (Our source even bought some Yahoo stock, anticipating something happening.)

Silver Lake’s interest in Yahoo has been widely reported, so this isn’t shocking. But, it’s interesting to hear people near the situation are feeling confident something happens.

Who was the gossiper? You may or may not see the person if you look at this gallery of people who were at the SA 100 party →
