A blank page for Yahoo
Last week, Yahoo chose Marissa Mayer to run Yahoo for about $71 million over the next five years, according to regulatory documents Yahoo filed—and it could top $120 million if an extra batch of stock grants that she is eligible for comes through.
Who is Marissa Mayer? Here are a few facts:
1- • She was the first female engineer at Google and employee number 20.
2- • She designed the “blank home page of Google.”
3- • She interviewed Lady Gaga on YouTube (over 2 million hits).
5- • At 37, she is the youngest CEO of a Fortune 500 company.
6- • She's expecting a baby boy on Oct 7.

Can Marissa turn around Yahoo like Steve Jobs did on his return to Apple?
Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Netscape and a venture capitalist, believes that Marissa Mayer is a smart choice to run Yahoo (YHOO), according to comments made last week during Fortune Brainstorm Tech in Aspen.
