I wonder if they are leaving because no one is using the Yahoo Advertising Network. They are all with Google.

Their departure are the lost for yahoo ... but I always think that yahoo need a new change. It is time to bring in the fresh ideas and new generation so that yahoo can turn into new direction.

The world is changing now and it was not like it ten years ago so yahoo can be just staying static. Beside, ypn has been all those years but does not get anywhere so why should yahoo keeping it that way.

Hopefully, with this new change, yahoo bringing in more positive side.

I read that Yahoo has over 50 vice presidents. That is "top-heavy", my friend.
With that kind of entrenchment in place, it's no wonder that nothing can move.
Consensus cannot be achieved. Everyone wants to preserve the status quo. And defend their own territory.
No one wants to risk personal failure, which ironically, results in corporate failure, or at the least, stagnation.

>edit>OK. I just checked with Yahoo. They list -
2 - Founders
1 - Chairman
1 - President
8 - Vice Presidents
4 - Directors
(perhaps this could be restated as "16 commanders".)

That doesn't seem quite so bad. It certainly isn't "50 VPs".
But it does seem top heavy.
I must be careful what I read and believe from the internet, without verification.

<edit2>I am completely wrong.
Google has 28 Vice Presidents. So it has to be something else.
Perhaps it's "corporate culture".

Perhaps Yahoo takes note of these things.
