Google's Search Event
The event will be led by Google's vice president of search products and user experience, Marissa Mayer
Google's taking over the Museum of Modern Art in downtown San Francisco Wednesday for a search event involving some of the company's top engineers.
The event, which was announced late last Friday, will be led by Google's vice president of search products and user experience, Marissa Mayer. Also in attendance will be Johanna Wright, who heads up all development of the search user interface; Ben Gomes, recently profiled in the San Jose Mercury News as the leading force behind Google Suggest; and Othar Hansson, instrumental in the development of the Google Rich Snippets feature unveiled last year.
It's not exactly clear what Google plans to announce, but you can bet from that roster of names that something involving the look and feel of the search results page will be discussed.
Google hinted in a Twitter message Tuesday that the event could be related to the Google doodle it's running on its home page. The company has taken its logo and broken it up into a collection of little balls that can be moved around the screen by hovering over the logo with a mouse, showing how you can manipulate objects on a page without having to actually click anything.
