I am no fan of Yahoo as a service or business, nor do I understand America’s fixation with bleaching their hair.
But I simply love how Carol Bartz, Yahoo’s CEO who was fired last Tuesday by telephone, has broken every rule about being forced out. She refuses to use euphemisms and press releases, and has called the board “doofuses” in the business magazine Fortune. She says in the interview that the board “fu#*+d me over.”
Those are some ginormous balls, and perhaps a career revival. Godspeed, Carol!
