Comment Re:corporations may not collectively bargain (Score 1) 116

Your analogy fails because union members are analogous to shareholders, not the corporations they form. Personally I'd be fine with individuals opting out of a closed shop as long as they also opted out of any wage rises or benefits the union wins on behalf of its members.

Comment Re:Yahoo brand (Score 1) 399

IIRC Yahoo! lost out to google because their search results were stuffed with paid ads. The more they fell behind google the more annoying their ads became. When it was clear they had lost the search engine (and email) race they morphed into a "web partner" for channel seven's advertising department. IMHO, the current CEO only succeed in enhancing the company's "cheap and nasty" smell.

BTW: Older Aussies (such as myself) still commonly use the word "yahoo" in it's original meaning. Also the lead actor in the (brilliant) Aussie comedy "Young Einstein", goes by the stage name "Yahoo Serious".

Fortunately their ticketing (Jira) and documentation (Confluence) products are good for actual work as well. I've used them in the past in a network engineering role, and I use confluence now in an equipment support role. Confluence is what Sharepoint would be like if the Sharepoint developers had ever used Wikipedia and Sharepoint also wasn't garbage.
