Even Yahoo Understands Why Government Bailouts Are Questionable

Posted by Bob Warfield on November 19, 2008

Interesting Forbes article making the rounds about what Yahoo’s 5 biggest mistakes were.  I’ll let you read it if you like as I’ve largely moved on from Yahoo.  I did love the quote from one Yahoo engineer when asked whether Yahoo should seek a government bailout:

“If you do, you’re admitting you’ve got nothing left, no future.”

I agree wholeheartedly with the Forbes writer’s response to that engineer:

God bless Silicon Valley.
