I think Y! needs someone who deeply understands search technology and UI and just sort of gets the web. Hollywood Semel never had a clue or a chance. Running AutoCad or whatever Bartz did is a lot different and requires a different mindset than a search company.
It seems like if Mayer Fails, then Y! has nobody to blame other than the board of directors or whoever really calls the shots there.
