Yang Yanked from Yahoo?
Jerry Yang resigned
as CEO of Yahoo, but given the collapse in stock price and fall
in market share -- as well as the bungled deal with Microsoft -- many wonder
if Yang was yanked.
Yang may have been heckled by investors and the financial press, but let's
not forget his accomplishments. He co-founded Yahoo a decade-and-a-half ago
while in college and built it into a huge brand and a site with many innovative
(at least, at the time they were launched) services like Yahoo Mail.
I'd take 1 percent of Yang's success and be happy.
