The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Paul Allen resurfaces in cable waters

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Paul Allen resurfaces in cable waters: "Billionaire Paul Allen's appearance at the annual cable-industry convention this month had tongues wagging. And not just because the reclusive mogul arrived aboard the world's largest privately owned yacht, Octopus, a 413-foot stunner Allen docked on the Mississippi River.
Allen returned to the convention stage for the first time since 1999 to carry the flag for his new set-top-box technology, which some in the industry say could be a winner.
His unusually high profile here set off speculation that Allen, chairman and controlling shareholder of troubled Charter Communications, the nation's third-largest cable-TV operator, was contemplating another acquisition as the industry undergoes more consolidation."
