    USA TODAY ASKS US: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO ASK CAROL BARTZ?

    “USA Today CEO Forum plans to interview Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz. And we’d like your help.

    Do you have any questions you’d like them to ask?

    Let us know what you want to know about Yahoo, Bartz, prospects for the Internet and digital media, and how CEOs can effectively manage companies in a period of
    such rapid change.

    We’ll ask Bartz as many of your questions as we can — and we’ll post her best
    answers on usatoday.com.” By David Lieberman

    Here’s our chance, go and post the questions to them about why is she destroying Yahoo Groups and why she won’t listen to thousands of users planning a mass exodus if the remodel continues!

    Let’s get our concerns out in the media!!!!

    We’re making progress in our quest to save Classic Yahoo Groups. People are starting to listen! We just have to keep on protesting and not let up!

    When I was in management consulting, a wise manager told me that a good mission statement (or elevator pitch) will pass “the shoe test.” What is that? Well, if the mission statement applies equally well to a shoe company and to your company, you fail. Consider:

    “Yahoo is a global series of SHOE experiences across a variety of FOOTWEAR that gives people what they want. In content it connects FOOTWEAR MANUFACTURERS to an audience that is global in scope. Yahoo is all about delivering experiences to individuals that make them engage with each other. Folks anchor on: are you a SHOE company? A FOOTWEAR company? A SPORTSWEAR company? We would like to engage with people on the things that matter most to them.”

    Fail.
