Fixing Yahoo

Note to Jerry Yang;

1) Recognize that you are not the one to lead / reposition YHOO. Stick to your knitting, you're making a fool out of yourself.

2) Spin off all non-strategic assets IE Alibaba,Y Japan,etc (approximate value of $15 billion of its current $27 Billion market cap).

3) 15%-20% reduction in headcount.

4) Dutch auction/buyback of stock .

5) Stake and spin/off new stand alone initiatives.

6) Go Open Source, and let others build in an ecosystem.
