All eyes on Yahoo as co-founder Jerry Yang resigns

Yahoo’s co-founder, Jerry Yang, has resigned from the company he cultivated for 17 years to pursue new opportunities. This announcement comes only two weeks after the appointment of Scott Thompson as Yahoo’s new CEO.

In a statement to the board, Yang wrote, “My time at Yahoo, from its founding to the present, has encompassed some of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my life. However, the time has come for me to pursue other interests outside of Yahoo.”

Carol Bartz has the style, does she have the substance?

There’s a lot to like about Yahoo’s new CEO, Carol Bartz.

Unlike Jerry Yang, she’s got personality. She doesn’t mince words and has been known to drop an expletive or two. More importantly, she seems to have a pretty good idea of what’s wrong at Yahoo and some decent ideas for fixing it.

Yahoo set to announce major organizational changes?

2008 was the year Yahoo probably wishes it could forget.

From the company’s disastrous handling of Microsoft’s acquisition bid to its failed search advertising deal with Google to continued marginalization of its search business, 2008 showed one of the internet’s biggest brands to be a company in disarray.
