Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Jerry Yang Leaves Yahoo

Yeah, all start-up founders can’t enjoy Jobsian “second comings” when they’re hired back to be CEO again.

i strongly believe that having transformed our platform and better aligned costs and revenues, we have a unique window for the right ceo to take ownership over the next wave of mission-critical decisions facing the company.

In other words: the board will shed as much blood as Ballmer demands before he considers buying the company again.

 

I love (as in: I’m gonna have nightmares tonight about this memo) that in 2008 the founder of Yahoo still adds the exclamation mark at the end of the company’s name, and doesn’t use a single uppercase letter in the entire memo. I’m not sure how exactly, but it makes perfect sense and explains a lot.
