More on Yahoo CEO search

Monday’s column on potential successors to Yahoo Chief Executive Jerry Yang drew some interesting feedback.

One person appreciated the suggestion of former Safeco boss Paula Reynolds, having seen her in action locally, and noted that she’s been helping AIG restructure since late October. Reynolds is overseeing its divestiture of assets.

I guess that’s even more preparation for the Yahoo job.

Another reader, former Pixar employee Michael Murdock, wrote from Arizona to nominate himself.

“To hell with anyone else in the mix. Call Steve Ballmer and tell him that I’ll sit down with him and talk a deal out as soon as I am in there as CEO of Yahoo. In fact, the very day they let me in we can talk,” Murdock wrote. “But not for acquisition. And he has to invest in Yahoo to help bolster it back into play … it’s not much to ask for and it preserves the marketplace and keeps the DOJ off of everyone’s back.”
