Yahoo to lose another VP

Yahoo is poised to lose its VP of platform engineering, Eric Boyd, according to a report in Valleywag.

Yahoo, which has seen its exodus of executives in recent months, is poised to lose Eric Boyd, vice president of platform engineering, according to a post on Valleywag.

That adds another to the mix, which includes the exodus of Ian Rogers, Yahoo's vice president of video and media applications, as noted Thursday in a blog by CNET Margaret Kane.

Both executives are apparently jumping ship to join the land of start-ups. In the case of Boyd, Valleywag, citing an anonymous source, said he's headed to Mochi Media.

Wonder if the two will split the cost of hiring a moving van to cart their stuff...

If Microsoft, in its pursuit of Yahoo, wants to preserve the brain trust at the Internet search pioneer, it may want to move sooner than later.
