The Yahoo Activist Shareholder Community Led By Eric Jackson and Ironfire Capital

Yahoo Inc Profile

This Yahoo! Shareowner Activism HUB is a place to learn about what you can do as a shareowner to effect change. Eric Jackson of Ironfire Capital launched this HUB after successfully running activist campaigns in 2007 against Yahoo and Motorola.

In both cases, Eric drafted a "Plan B" for the companies and then put them up for edit and comment on a wiki. Fellow shareholders collaborated in making the plans much better for the target companies.

The activist campaigns were successful in part because of this collaborative effort. Ironfire Capital is an activist hedge fund using a Web 2.0 model of collaboration on activist campaigns.

You can read about, comment, and edit information pertaining to the current Ironfire Yahoo! activist campaign here. You can share your ideas with others and then rally support for them.
