On 10th Sep at 3 pm I went to Leela Palace for Yahoo’s How Big Can You Think series session on "Six Degrees — The Science of A connected Age".Taken by Duncan Watts (Principal Research Scientist Yahoo Research)
Nearly 200+ folk gathered.(Some 20+ ceo’s , 20+ students, 10+ media and remaining are developers)
2 hr session including Q&A.
Full waste.
After hearing that (even in Yahoo Hack Day) I understood why Yahoo is lagging behind in the race.
No fresh research.Old fellows with old ideas.Reinventing the same.
No fresh thoughts and they cant move from that also.
Its better to sell their business to someone.
Yahaoo people have to think again before taking sessions.
They spend 2 lakhs roughly for that session but taken 20 lakhs from other companies by attending their session.
200 people multiply by 2 hrs = 400 man hrs (atleast 3k from each per hour).
Damn waste.
