The Entire D6 Interview With Yahoo's Jerry Yang and Sue Decker (2 of 4)

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

Unfortunately, due to issues too complicated to go into, we have to post all the D6 interviews in several 15-minute parts (I know, I know).

But–as many readers have requested–they will all be available in their entirety over the next weeks in this column.

Here’s Part 2 of 4 of our discussion with Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang and President Sue Decker that Walt Mossberg did (with a surprise appearance by me).

(I will be posting one video part of the Yang/Decker interview every day this week through Thursday.)

With Yahoo’s (YHOO) truly roiling proxy fight now on with activist investor Carl Icahn, take a gander at Yang and Decker as they tried to defend themselves, not always as well as they needed to.

In this video, they talk about the turmoil at Yahoo and how they are managing it, Yahoo’s efforts at socializing and opening its platform and they also try to answer Walt’s question of “What is Yahoo?”
