Marissa Mayer on Google TV

Marissa Mayer GoogleI’ve been meaning to post a photo of Marissa Mayer for a long time and now I have something of an occasion.

She recently addressed a crowd of angry TV execs: “We’re computer scientists,” she said. “We’re not brilliant storytellers or content creators.”

Wow. I bet she’ll regret it a few years down the line. Anyway, the point was that Google Video doesn’t compete with TV. In fact, the argument goes, online videos whet the viewer’s appetite for something more substantial!

I’d buy that. I’ll buy anything that Marissa says. Really!
