Like a lot of other companies in Silicon Valley, TimeBridge has hired their fair share of ex-Yahoo employees. CEO Yori Nelken said most of their ex-Yahoo engineers got a chuckle when they noticed the large Yahoo advertisement on the stadium wall next to the 404 marker (for 404 feet from home plate) during a recent company outing to a baseball game.
404 errors occur when a web page cannot be located on a server. Given Yahoo’s 2008 travails, it’s not hard to see the humor in this accidentally created message. This isn’t the first time the ad has been noticed, and I for one am glad to see Yahoo stubbornly refuse to move the ad.
