Yahoo! and Marissa Mayer

Verizon is purchasing Yahoo! and after five years of CEO in a very challenging position, Marissa Mayer will be off to do other things. I was interviewed about her exit (with a very nice golden parachute) on The Street / The Deal. I think she will do well, whether as a VC or the leader of a company and  I look forward to watching the next steps in her meteoric career.

She did well for herself but she ruined the company. Every major decision she made was disastrous. Just look at the stock price and value of the company during her tenure. Delaware law is so restrictive on claims or else she would have been sued numerous times.
