Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz, fired via email (see? they’re human too). KehlBayern September 7, 2011 News Yahoo’s potty-mouthed former CEO Carol Bartz informed her company that she had been fired, via email. To top it all off it was attached with a ‘sent my from iPad’ tag. Carol Bartz’s tenure at Yahoo has often been controversial because she’s known to talk like a sailor and pillage like a pirate. Yahoo’s stock jumped on news of the CEO’s ouster. Yahoo has dwindled into irrelevance since the early-2000s and without a clear plan may find itself among the pets.com-ilk. Honestly, when I think of Yahoo I think of this video most prominently: And scene.
