I wasn't a fan of newish Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz when she was at Autodesk. Nothing specific, just not a fan.
She is growing on me after her comments on Squawk yesterday. From the San Jose Mercury News:
"Would Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz have accepted Microsoft's $40 billion-plus takeover offer last year if she had been in charge of the company then?
"Sure, do you think I'm stupid?" Bartz replied in an interview this morning on CNBC, the business-news cable channel."
Is she responsible for the huge change that just went down in the tech media? Two months ago, Yahoo was an also ran search player. Suddenly, they are on online media powerhouse with a quaint little search business and a partnership with Microsoft. Quite a move.
This market refuses to correct. I has got to be pissing a lot of pros off and restoring the confidence of a lot of amateurs.
