Whitman steps down at eBay

Meg Whitman, the lady that was the force majeure at eBay in making it the biggest, bestest site in the entire world, is stepping down, heeding her own advice that a CEO should never stay at a company more than 10 years.

Here’s to you, Meg! Best of luck for the future. Click on the link above to read the article.
