Yahoo Creating “Brickhouse” Internal Incubator To Keep Talent

GigaOM reports that Yahoo is creating an internal incubator, code named Brickhouse, to give some of Yahoo’s talent a place to work without the bureaucracy of a large company. The person running the Brickhouse, love that name by the way, is Flickr founder Caterina Fake. It is apparent that Yahoo knows that hiring new talent is a hard thing to do, but keeping current talent, may be harder — definitely more important, in my opinion.
