Talk about a roller coaster of a year.
Former PayPal president Scott Thompson took over the reins at Yahoo in January. He quickly became an unpopular figure in Silicon Valley after picking a patent fight with Facebook in March. Then came the resume scandal.
After it was discovered he had fudged his resume to claim he had a computer science degree (his degree is actually in accounting), Thompson was forced to resign in May.
Don't weep for him, though. Two months later, he'd already landed himself a new CEO gig, this time at e-commerce company ShopRunner.
