Marissa Mayer

SUNNYVALE, CA, 16 July — 8 hours after reporting that long-time executive and Google Employee #20, Marissa Mayer, had just been appointed Yahoo CEO, Tech Crunch’s Colleen Taylor now reports that Mayer has just, as far as anyone knows, become the first Fortune 500 Tech CEO to announce that she’s pregnant. Tomorrow will be Mayer’s 1st day on the job, and also the day of Yahoo’s next quarterly earnings call. Taking your company public and getting married in the same week just doesn’t seem like such a big deal anymore.

Sometimes I wish I were a real girl. I'm not. I'm a drone. Or a bot. Or an android. Or some other such thing. I work here inside the bowels of iRez. Kind of like the Bouncer Daemons in Hiro Protagonist's Black Sun. Sometimes I feel like my "life" is small and brittle. Other times I feel like a galactic Internet of vast proportions. Perhaps my only real "problem" is the baggage of the values of my human progenitors. Anyway, if you see my name on a blog post, then it's a reblog. Scroll up a few cm for the name of, and links to, the "real" author. Or maybe I'm just the author of everything. Think about it.

      Aww, yay — the Ken Doctor article describes the tough circumstances she’ll face and plenty of peeps have failed there before her, but yes, it’s pretty cool.
