Yahoo has long been the leakiest ship in Silicon Valley. So what is its new captain, tough-talking former Autodesk chief Carol Bartz, going to do about it? Cuss a lot!
At an all-hands meeting today, Bartz told the staff that she'd "dropkick to fucking Mars" anyone whose company gossip ended up on the blogs. And, of course, a Yahoo promptly told Valleywag, which is so favored a recipient of tips from inside Yahoo that it had a cameo in a company-produced spoof video.
Was she kidding? Perhaps. But it's a foolish threat to make in jest if she's not prepared to apply boot to rear. And if Bartz is, she's going to wear her foot out fast.
