How angry are Yahoo employees over Scott Thompson lying on his resume?More here, but the gist is that the asshole said he had a computer science degree until last week when a bunch of hedge-fund assholes noticed that his college didn't offer that degree until four years after he graduated; he's really a graduate of an accounting program.

Big whoop as far as CEO scandals go - although he should be fired of course - but if the Yahoo internal reaction is really that pissy about it then I kind of surprised at the amount of credentialism involved, given my own stereotypes about the Silicon Valley tech sector. Mikey knows more about the milieu I'm sure, but I'd imagined that the laborers involved were not really interested in qualifications as such. I mean, by the time your four-year degree is over technology has moved along, and those who can program are out there doing it aren't they? Mind you those guys are easily distinguished from management.
