Surprise! Yahoo Poaches 13-Year Executive Google Vet

Didn’t see this coming.  I guess a lot of other people didn’t either.  Suddenly, Yahoo! is cool again.

“In a surprising turn of events it was announced on Monday that long-time Google executive Marissa Mayer tendered her resignation and will start at her new position as president and CEO at Yahoo on Tuesday. 

The former executive’s departure not only marks a devastating loss for Google but an uncommon win for Yahoo, a company that has had trouble attracting and retaining top talent in recent years. “

Smart is the new sexy.  Best of luck, Marissa, you are going to need it.
