Yahoo has a leaking problem

Summary:If Patricia Dunn were at Yahoo, she would be having a cow. None of the leaks HP endured measure up to the leak-a-thon going on at Yahoo these days.

If Patricia Dunn were at Yahoo, she would be having a cow. None of the leaks HP endured measure up to the leak-a-thon going on at Yahoo these days.

To wit:

--Brad Garlinghouse's Peanut Butter Manifesto winds up in the Wall Street Journal.

--Yahoo has a reorg meeting and Michael Arrington gets live play-by-play.

--Arrington then gets Yahoo's "Project Fraternity" docs referring to a potential acquisition with Facebook. A leak that could screw up any alleged negotiations between the two parties.

Now I'm not complaining--all of this is entertaining and gives me blog fodder. And I'd gladly take the leaks, but if I'm running Yahoo I'm seething. Good thing Dunn isn't running the show at Yahoo.
