It’s about 30% tongue-in-cheek but 110% accurate. Most telling of just how warped the engineering culture at Yahoo! would have to be what they’ve let happen to Flickr.
My personal favorite from the list:
5. No more BlackBerries as the official devices at Yahoo. Everyone gets an iPhone or an Android. Fire the IT people who protest. Upgrade internal IT and development systems/tools to what modern startups use. Hard to expand on this without breaking confidentiality but every Yahoo engineer reading this knows what I’m talking about.
I typically don’t pay attention to what goes on over at Yahoo! because frankly I just don’t care, so I was surprised to hear that their official phones are BlackBerries. Shudder.
