BigThinker Talk: Video Available On-Line

Last week I had a very pleasant visit to Yahoo Research in Sunnyvale CA, giving a BigThinker talk about our Who's Bigger rankings.   They pulled out all stops for me during my visit, although the Purple Carpet treatment was really for a delegation from Brazil.   But still, I am very appreciative for their hospitality.

Yahoo has made available the video of this talk below.  Particularly amusing is the reputation battle I pose between Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and rival AOL CEO Tim Armstrong.   The Yahoo folk's impressive loyalty was well justified, as she crushed him in historical significance rank, by a score of 86,140 to 133,490.
