Yahoo “It Was You” Protest: French Engineers Go On Strike
Yahoo engineers in France went on strike and protested yesterday over Carol Bartz wanting to close down the R&D center in Grenoble and ultimately putting 78 engineers out of work. Some of these protestors created a web site named Yahoo It Was You on a Google owned Blogspot, as a way to mock Yahoo’s “Its You” campaign.
These engineers announced the strike yesterday on the blog and posted a video to express their distaste for the decision to cut these jobs:
