AltaVista Inc is looking for yet another CEO after Ken Barber announced he will retire at the end of the year, according to AFX News.

Barber was AltaVista's CFO and acting CEO of the search engine-cum-failed ISP.

He took charge of the company following Rod Schrock's sudden departure in October.

Schrock left to "spend more time with his family" - a euphemism that means he was sacked.

AltaVista always maintained Shrock's departure had absolutely nothing to do with the failed launch of an ISP in Britain earlier this year.

Yesterday, The Register reported that AltaVista will ditch its subscription free ISP in the US on Sunday. It's our guess that Barber's departure has nothing to do with that either. ®
