Wow... Yahoo CEO job, so far, been a "widowmaker". Can she miraculously turn it around or it's a preparation for the merge with google?

I have high hopes that Yahoo was already turning around, and she can keep that momentum going, with her deep appreciation of search, and her understanding of local.

Excellent choice for Yahoo. Excellent choice for Marissa: "Goodbye, Google."


She's smart, she works hard, and she's lived through Google from 1999 through 2012 as it made thousands of decisions.

Plus, she understands Twitter and other social media.

Those together give her the ability to set a vision for Yahoo and go after it.

Now, let's see what her vision for Yahoo is.

What's interesting to me is that all of the following companies have ex-Googlers in major executive roles: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Yahoo, and AOL.

Google influence is everywhere.
