image thumb106 Yahoo will be having a new CEO and its Carol Bartz????

What had been thought of to be a rumor turned out to be more than true as the WSJ confirmed Carol Bartz to have accepted the offer to be  Yahoo‘s next CEO. Bartz had been associated to Autodesk for more than a decade (14 years) and will bring in some professional leadership (admit it Jerry Yang wasn’t a professional). However the new CEO has known both Jerry Yang (both are on Cisco’s board) and Susan Decker (both members of the Intel’s board) and it appears things will be pretty ‘ah, we know each other well‘. So is she going to take up a direction to please Icahn and the gang by selling a part of Yahoo’s business to Microsoft? Or will she be interested in keeping both parties satisfied?
