Marissa Mayer in as CEO of Yahoo!

The exclamation mark isn’t there for emphasis.

As reported all over the internet yesterday, long-time Google employee and VP Marissa Mayer has moved over to Yahoo! as their CEO (hat-tip to The Verge).

I hold out hope that maybe she can turn that place around and provide a credible competitor to Google in many ways. She is, by far, the best candidate that Yahoo! has been able to grab and I eagerly wait to see what changes she might bring to the company.
