Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake, the husband-and-wife co-founders of the Flickr photo-sharing site Yahoo acquired in 2005, are leaving the Internet giant.
Fake's last day was June 13, and Butterfield's will be July 12, Yahoo spokeswoman Terrell Karlsten said. "Obviously Stewart and Katarina have made tremendous contributions to Yahoo. We appreciate all their work and wish them well," she said.
The pair join a small but notable parade of Yahoo departures. Among others in the last week are Jeff Weiner, executive vice president of the network division; Usama Fayyad, chief data officer; and Jeremy Zawodny, a top programmer and advocate of what's now become the Yahoo Open Strategy.
