Yay. Maybe she'll buy some new servers to speed up their email interface.

I saw her speak at a conference a while back and I've followed her on twitter ever since - smart, smart, smart

if I still read tweets by anyone, I'd probably start following her. I be she has a very interesting perspective on the industry.

It's true that not much people use once popular services like Yahoo chat, Yahoo mail, Yahoo groups, I still find flickr to be one of the best photography-related social networking site (rather, I would call it the best among such sites).

But yes, the way Yahoo started lot of services much before their competitors, they should've been much much ahead of them today. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case.

I hope you've changed your password!

Seriously though, I also hope Marissa Mayer makes a go of it. Yahoo has been around since the beginning of the web, when it was just a long alphabetical list of websites and was hosted at akebono.stanford.edu, Jerry Yang's student workstation. It's part of the history of the Internet, and I'd like to see it remain part of the present.

Raising a child and running a company. Its certainly not going to be easy. I'd like to see her succeed though.
