I agree with Ben Horowitz.

A CEO who reports to a person who also reports to him is not a stable structure.

Specifically, this new Zynga organizational hierarchy has a built-in structural problem.

As Ben quotes hip hop's Geto Boys:

Cause two suckers can’t agree on something, a thousand mutherfuckers die for nothing.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

The Tech Press does NOT like the new Zynga CEO:

And with good reason:

The rest of us choose to think of this as the next step in running Zynga into the ground.
