Weeks, thanks for the infographic.
I appreciated the mention of Paul Graham's 8/2010 essay, "What Happened to Yahoo [paulgraham.com]". For those who don't know him, Graham, along with Robert Morris, was the guy who originated Viaweb, what became Yahoo! Store in '98.
Speaking as a guy who spent from early '98 to just last month working on Yahoo! Stores (migrated away from the last one, yay!), I can attest to the fact that Yahoo! dragged its feet on investing in or improving that product, to the point where it became a hinderance to business' growth. It seems clear, in retrospect, that the shabby treatment Yahoo! Store received from Yahoo! was probably being replicated across the entire company. Ah well.
