Yahoo: Lonely at the Top
June 19, 2008
I rarely blog about executive comings and goings, but the goings at Yahoo are hard to ignore.
- Flickr is one of the few web services with which I feel a personal connection. That connection is frayed with the departure of Flickr founders Stewart and Caterina. But there’s fun amidst the fraying, because of Stewart’s resignation letter.
- The executive to whom Stewart wrote that letter has already left. Michael Arrington reports on that departure, and on the difficulty of keeping track of all the exec exits from Yahoo.
- Paul Kedrosky asks: Is Yahoo Over? Google’s choice of ad for Paul’s post seems to show a certain dark humor.
At this rate, Jerry Yang and Sue Decker will be the only executives left at Yahoo by Independence Day. The theme song? As you can see from the post title, I gave the nod to Randy Newman, but Bob Marley (Exodus) was also a contender.
