Marissa Mayer's Pregnancy

Marissa Mayer is pregnant. Who knew before yesterday? It is like Bill Clinton became president in 1992 and a big chunk of the media talked often of Hillary Clinton's hair. It is one of those things. I think Hillary carries herself well, but style would not be her number one strength.

I am happy for Marissa Mayer that she is expecting. I know she is very happy about it. And I guess it is a very big deal to be Yahoo CEO. But there seem to be as many headlines about Mayer's pregnancy as her ascendancy to the CEO position. There is a tinge of gender there. She already has been a role model. Now she is to be a bigger role model for women. And one would hope the attention would soon pass on to the wonderful work she has done at Google and what she might be able to do for Yahoo.

People are comparing Yahoo to Apple when Steve Jobs came back in 1997, I believe. There are some legitimate high expectations there, and that perhaps is the bigger story.
