Parc Lecture By Google’s Marissa Mayer

Marissa Mayer spoke last night at PARC for BayCHI, and Alan Williamson recounts it at his blog. Definitely worth reading. Some tidbits:

  • The Google home page was bare not because of some philosophical reason, but because Google’s founders didn’t know enough HTML to make it more pretty.
  • The name Google was actually just a misspelling.
  • GMail was used internally at Google for two years before it was revelead to the public. Boy, they really can keep a secret.
