You just lost your token female

Hey Google, you just lost some more diversity.

After years of heading-up its search business, Google's most profitable unit, Ms. Mayer became vice president of the company's local efforts in late 2010. The following year, Google promoted another executive, Jeff Huber, to be the senior vice president of local and commerce, putting him one level above Ms. Mayer's post. Although Google characterized her move as a promotion at the time, some wondered if she would be content with the reorganization.

Ms. Mayer resigned from Google on Monday afternoon by telephone. She starts at Yahoo on Tuesday. Ms. Mayer will also join Yahoo's board.

She's not just going to Yahoo. She's going to Yahoo to be their CEO. Also, "Monday afternoon"? That's right now. Obviously, it was time to turn and burn and get the heck out of Mountain View.
