Carol Bartz Out As Yahoo! CEO

imageIt seems that every news and tech site is simultaneously reporting the news that Carol Bartz, CEO of Yahoo!, is no longer with the company. The New York Times reports Bartz, in a message to employees, wrote: “I am very sad to tell you that I’ve just been fired over the phone by Yahoo’s chairman of the board.”

Carol Bartz joined Yahoo in January 2009. In December of 2010, she was at 92Y with Norman Pearlstine, chairman of Bloomberg Businessweek, as part of the Captains of Industry series. In frank discussion of her career, Bartz discussed working for 3M—where she was fired from her job before she even started, Groupon’s valuation, employee turnover at Yahoo!, laughing off a merger between Aol and Yahoo!, and more. Watch video highlights below.

United States Postal Service To Honor Ten Poets


In 2012, the United States Postal Service will honor ten poets with their very own Forever Stamp: Elizabeth Bishop, Joseph Brodsky, Gwendolyn Brooks, E. E. Cummings, Robert Hayden, Denise Levertov, Sylvia Plath, Theodore Roethke, Wallace Stevens, and William Carlos Williams.

We’re doubly excited about this because Joseph Brodsky’s photograph was taken by the Unterberg Poetry Center’s official photographer, Nancy Crampton! Read more about this Forever Stamp series on Beyond the Perf.

Over on the USPS Facebook page, they are encouraging fans to share a favorite poem from one of the poets.

And the 92Y Poetry Season kicks off it’s 73rd season on September 26 with Seamus Heaney.
