Judged through the lens of the past (Coffee Talk with Kim)

Leadership can sometimes only be judged through the lens of the past. Though it seems like they were focused on their mission and believed in what they were doing, some times too much something good can be bad. 

Interesting facts: 

  • 1998: YAHOO refused to acquire Google for 1M.
  • 2002: YAHOO realized its mistake and offered 3B Google requested 5B YAHOO refused.  
  • 2008: Microsoft offered 50B to acquire YAHOO YAHOO rejected the offer.
  • 2016: YAHOO has been acquired for 5B and the current value of Google is around 545B.
