Something About Yahoo


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.

Yahoo desperately needs to just take whatever MS offers them, and “surrender”. At this point, the company is hemorrhaging confidence and cash, and needs to do something to get back on track.

@Francis. Thanks for the catch there. Appreciate it.

@Todd, yes I agree, Mr. Yang should get a grip and of course, I have to admit, closing Brickhouse was stupid, as dumb perhaps as that taco truck by a dumb start up with little or no prospects.

Whoopsie. A typo on the double s.
