Carol Bartz Out as Yahoo CEO

Yahoo Inc. confirmed that Carol Bartz has been removed as the company's chief executive.

The tough-talking, sometimes profane Bartz, a respected veteran of Autodesk and Sun Microsystems, had hoped to bring her management skills to bear on a company that was adrift for years and unable to capitalize on what is still one of the Web’s largest audiences under one corporate roof. And she did clean house, hacking into Yahoo’s infamous matrix management system that had slowed down the introduction of innovative products and jettisoning many operations.

From this article,

"I am very sad to tell you that I've just been fired over the phone by Yahoo's chairman of the board"

Sounds like a classy organisation.

I remember when Yahoo bought Meedio, turned it into Yahoo Go! For TV and then completely abandoned it right after the first public beta. That went absolutely nowhere. Years later, Google buys SageTV. Ironic.
