Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz’s Green Room Note to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer

547701959_4qebh-thjpgWhen asked about the state of Microsoft’s (MSFT) relationship with Yahoo (YHOO) during his D7 interview, CEO Steve Ballmer had little new to report, but he did say that Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz left him a note in the D7 Green Room this morning. We’ve managed to find it. It’s a purple Post-It, and it was left in the D7 Program in the makeup room–a program all D7 guests sign. Bartz and Ballmer share a page in it, and the Yahoo CEO stuck her note below Ballmer’s picture knowing he’d later sign the program when getting his makeup done. The note reads:

“Steve,
Forget it
Won’t help
Ha
Carol”
