Article on Marissa Mayer, Google's Director of Consumer Products

Great article on a key person behind Google's success. Two interesting insights: Mayer is successful because she can travel between the geek and non-geek worlds. And, a quote: "I like to launch [products] early and often. Nobody remembers the Sex Book [Madonna] or the Newton [Apple]. Consumers remember your average over time. That philosophy frees you from fear."
