Senior Yahoo! Exec Brad Garlinghouse recently wrote a memo to senior management sharing his thoughts on what is wrong with Yahoo! and what he things it will take to fix it.
I don’t know if this was intended or not (I suspect it was), but this so-called “Peanut Butter Manifesto” (his point is that Yahoo! is spreading itself thinly across everything) showed up yesterday in the Wall Stree Journal.
It is worth a read, I guess, though nothing in it comes as a surprise.
More interesting is this bold move by Garlinghouse. I’d put money that he is shortly either going to be running the joint or joining the list of Internet execs out on the street.
