quote: To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration is important, so we need to be working as a team. That is why it is critical that we all work hard for this company, regardless of where we are working from. Some of the best decisions and insights come from Skype chat and wiki discussions, video-calls with new team members, and impromptu Google Hangouts. Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we forget to use collaborative tools such as chat, wikis, and video-conferencing frequently and intelligently. Doubly so when incompetent executives try to tell smart people where, when and how they should work. So I won't be doing that; no one ay Yahoo! will ever do that, that is my promise to you.We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with communication, collaboration, and focusing on those problems that are truly important.
