Here are some random but real hints: now that's using social lamestream media; the Alibaba effect has worn off; she got Mitt's help to be in the next debate; and they're trying to heal a 1,000-year-old rift.
If I were Marissa Mayer, I'd say/write the following to anyone who is in any way curious about Yahoo and its future. It's what I refer to as "assertive humility."
Donald Trump has nothing in common with the overwhelmed, alienated, angry and forgotten. He may have the skill to speak to them as though he is sympatico, but he isn't. He has his every need -- and whim -- attended to immediately. He is the antithesis of alienated.
Tech firms have an obligation to comply with reasonable and specific requests, in order to solve and thwart crimes. And it just seems like the right thing to do. With increasing terrorist attacks on soft targets, our domestic and foreign intelligence agencies should not be "handcuffed" while they seek to save lives and solve crimes.

This was huge for me. For seven years, I'd been sending out my writing, hoping someone somewhere would take notice. I'd been fortunate to be featured on some terrific websites, but none with the notoriety of Yahoo.
Aside from the exciting, albeit still long over-due step major tech innovators are taking to foster family leave policy change, what particularly interests me about this story is the sheer timing of it all. Despite it being a well-timed PR move, that isn't to say the change itself isn't a good thing.
A growing number of companies - from hi-tech corporations like Yahoo and Intel, to healthcare corporations like Kaiser Permanente and Genentech - are taking a more holistic and sophisticated view of health.
