This LA Times article covering the clash of the Hollywood types and the Silicon Valley Yahoos is pretty funny.
A parking space story leads off:
a Yahoo executive recently recruited from Fox Broadcasting Co. [sent an e-mail] that "SOMEONE" had parked in his space. For some who received it, the all-capitals dispatch read like a scream: "PLEASE MOVE OR YOU WILL BE TOWED."
Then later on, more parking jealousy
Shortly after he was hired, Braun converted a conference room with a patio into his personal office. He also reserved a parking space close to the elevators for his car. His top executives followed his example, fueling derision among some in Sunnyvale, where only Semel and lawyers who handle confidential matters have offices.
Yahoo's top executives drew the line when Braun asked for a corporate jet.
Thank goodness for that!
Reminds me of the clash at SGI between Jim Clark and Ed McCracken. That doesn't bode too well for Yahoo!, in the end Clark was the exiled winner... and McCracken? Who knows where he is today?
