Yahoo CEO Steps Down, Doesn't Know Computers

I have no idea how no one could take this company seriously. No, really.

In a last minute reprieve, the Internet has given me my hot news item for the day:

Scott Thompson, CEO of Yahoo!, has resigned, after an "activist shareholder" pointed out that he didn't actually have a Computer Science degree listed on his professional C.V.

That is, the guy behind Yahoo!, Yahoo Mail, and Flickr didn't technically have an accredited understanding of how computers of the Internet work.

To anyone with the ability to register a new Gmail account in under an hour, this should have been patently obvious.
