Yikes. (http://techland.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2008/11/17/yahoo-ceo-jerry-yang-to-step-down/)

Sort of reminds me of the little girl in Joy Luck Club who doesn't want to play piano, changes her mind and then when she tells her mother she is ready to play and her mother doesn't care anymore.

What is his role as "Chief Yahoo" ???

YHOO was up 47c in after hours trading, will be interesting to see how it goes in normal trading, positive just because he has left or really positive as investors jump on early in case their is a new MSFT bid once a replacement is named.

After the MSFT bid debacle there will be a lot of investors happy he is gone and hoping that the stock will improve a bit. On the other hand MSFT is probably offering champagne baths to everyone with the money they saved by not upping their offer to $35 or more and then getting burnt from the market activity since then.
