I found a presentation on YouTube by Marissa Mayer, VP, Search Products and User Experience at Google. The title of her presentation, conducted during the Google Press Day in Paris on June 19, 2007 is "Search – Past , Present and Future".
Everyone interested in search engines and search process should view and listen to the presentation. It is not everyday that we can listen to industry leaders and find out what they do, how they do it and what plans they have for the future.
The YouTube link for the the presentation is here. If the movie doesn’t start at once make sure you refresh the page.
Last week Richard MacManus from the popular Read/Write Web blog had a posting and comments about a similar presentation from Marissa Mayer. Compare the two if you have time, if not you can only read the summary from the blog.
