The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Google executive Marissa Mayer to become Yahoo CEO in surprise move

Yahoo scores coup in bringing in Mayer, who was the 20th employee to join Google and who had spent 13 years there, Dominic Rushe and Charles Arthur, Monday 16 July 2012

Marissa Mayer, one of Google's top executives and its first female engineer, will be the next chief executive officer of Yahoo, making her one of the most prominent women in Silicon Valley and in corporate America.

Mayer will start immediately, with her first day being Tuesday 17 July. The fact that she was a candidate had been kept completely secret – with no indication from Google's top managers that she was about to leave.

The appointment of Mayer is a surprising and impressive coup for Yahoo, a company that has been racked by internal turmoil as it has struggled to compete with Google, Facebook and Twitter in the online display advertising market. Mayer will be Yahoo's fifth chief executive in five years, and its second woman.

"I am honoured and delighted to lead Yahoo, one of the internet's premier destinations for more than 700 million users," Mayer said in a statement. "I look forward to working with the company's dedicated employees to bring innovative products, content, and personalized experiences to users and advertisers all around the world."

Yahoo said that Mayer's appointment "signals a renewed focus on product innovation", indicating that the company aims to compete on the technological – and not just the content – front.

Mayer, 37, has a degree in artificial intelligence. In 1999, when Google was barely a year old, she became its 20th employee, going on to spend 13 years there. She had become one of its most prominent voices. More recently, Mayer has also begun to forge a wider role in corporate America, recently joining the board of retail giant Walmart.

She is sixmonths pregnant with her first child, due in October, and said her maternity leave would be "a few weeks long and I'll work through it".

Mayer joins a very short list of women in top jobs in Silicon Valley, alongside Meg Whitman, the chief executive of Hewlett-Packard, Virginia Rometty, the head of IBM, and Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer.

She takes over at a company that has been roiled by scandal and argument. In May, Yahoo lost its last chief executive, Scott Thompson, after only four months. The former PayPal boss was ousted after it emerged that he had padded his resumé, leading to angry shareholders demanding that he go. Thompson's departure also led to a board reshuffle and the resignation of chairman Roy Bostock.

Thompson's exit followed the even more tempestuous firing of his predecessor Carol Bartz, who left in a foul-mouthed tirade, calling the board "doofuses" who had "fucked me over."

Yahoo has struggled for years to keep up with Google in search ads as Facebook has eclipsed it in display advertising. Yahoo is now worth just over $19bn, less than half the $44.6bn Microsoft offered for the company in 2008.

The company stock jumped 2% in after-hours trading to just over $16.

Colin Gillis, a tech analyst at BGC Partners in New York, said Mayer was a great appointment and a loss for Google. "She is in a different league," he said. "She is very widely respected and she really knows this business."

At Google, Mayer had been responsible for many of the company's key products, including its famous search homepage, Gmail and Google News. More recently, she has taken on responsibility for location and local services, including Google Maps.

She was a popular Google prosleytiser, often sent out to talk about Google's services, and she also sat on Google's operating committee, a cadre of close advisers to Google's co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

Shortly after her move into local services in 2010, Google made another executive, Jeff Huber, senior vice-president of local and commerce, one level above Mayer's post.

Gillis said she Mayer's career path appeared to have been blocked at Google. "I think she got so far but they were moving her sideways," he said. "I don't think they will be happy about this. It's a blow."

Yahoo co-founder David Filo said: "Marissa is a well-known, visionary leader in user experience and product design, and one of Silicon Valley's most exciting strategists in technology development. I look forward to working with her to enhance Yahoo's product offerings for our over 700 million unique monthly visitors."
