+TechCrunch What can I say, I'm rooting for her. I used to be a fan of Yahoo! when they had the web web ecosystem. Then they blew it one piece at a time. It'd be nice to see them get another shot at life.
I don't know, I mean, Yahoo! doesn't really have any one thing they do any better than anyone else. They just do a lot of things moderately well. I'd enjoy seeing some innovation from them, but I doubt that I personally will ever find myself enamored with them.
Not sure that profiling the user as the query is a great idea. She is right about the user giving up privacy to gain that functionality. I just don't know that most would be willing to give much more. Also I think search is a function of exploration. I don't want it to be biased to my past data points. Some honing is good but there is definitely a limit. Great interview tho.
