I've had the pleasure of working with Marissa for four years helping shape Google's user experience, but to find the root of my belief that she's the best possible choice for Yahoo!'s top spot, you just need to look at my archives.
When Carol Bartz was ousted in late 2011, I wrote my own prescription for Yahoo!'s next leader:
Though the subsequent appointment of Scott Thompson was a small step in the right direction (hiring someone who had worked in a leadership position in a consumer internet company) it didn't go nearly far enough, CS degrees notwithstanding.
I don't recall if I had Marissa specifically in mind when I wrote my description of the ideal Yahoo! CEO, but I might as well have. She's exactly what Yahoo! needs.
If you like it, please share it.
