Dawn of a new day at Yahoo?

I had the pleasure of working with Scott Thompson and his team at PayPal back in 2009 and 2010. I was impressed by his energy and drive – if I wasn’t building my own startup I would have jumped at the chance to work with him. Today Yahoo announced that they have appointed him their CEO. Bravo Yahoo! Scott is just the sort of leader Yahoo needs. Scott has a great understanding of payments, shopping and mobile – everything I think Yahoo will need to help turn around public perception of the iconic internet brand. Additionally, Scott will be able to attract the right people to join/rejoin the Yahoo team. I know I would be thrilled to work with him again. Best of luck Scott and best of luck Yahoo!
