I was unable to bring myself to participate in the morbid and nearly gleeful frenzy that turned victimization of Yahoo (s YHOO) faithful by a management team that gives incompetence a new meaning. None of them were fired…even Jerry goes back to being Jerry. Of all the things I read about this sad episode, this bit seemed to be the most relevant.

Yahoo’s rise and fall has such an epic quality, making it a proxy for Silicon Valley’s boom-and-bust cycle. And it’s partly because Yahoo, even in its troubled state, has a place at the future of media — through sites like Flickr, the photo-sharing site which turns every person with a digital camera into a news photographer, and Yahoo Buzz, the headline-voting service which opens up the Yahoo homepage to news stories from the smallest of blogs.
