Bad News at Yahoo!?

John C. Dvorak noted in the current edition of tech5 that layoffs may be in store at internet company Yahoo! on Wednesday. Radio station KLIV also reports that while layoffs are expected nothing is certain until an all-hands meeting Wednesday morning. Between those two reports and others there are no confirmed details about what parts of Yahoo!’s diversified range of activity will face the axe.

Nothing is known if Yahoo! tools such as Yahoo! Pipes, Flickr, Delicious, and others may face the axe. While rumors about “unprofitable” tools being considered for termination exist, no specifics are available yet. Libraries using those tools may be prudent in having contingency plans available depending upon Wednesday’s news.
