Terry Semel’s Hollywood Ending

Dave Pell:

I keep imagining a 2001 Help Wanted Ad that goes something like this: “Most popular and promising internet company looking for a new CEO to come and re-direct the company into a giant shithole. Compensation includes a permanent suite at the Fairmont and $500 million.”

That’s basically the role Terry Semel stepped into at Yahoo.
