Meet the amazing women of CNET's CES 2012 Women in Tech panelWe profile Marissa Mayer, Padmasree Warrior and Caterina Fake, three tech luminaries headlining at CNET's first ever Women in Tech panel, live from the CES Stage at CES 2012.
Marissa Mayer started at Google in 1999 and was the company's 20th employee, and its first woman engineer. These days, she's running Location and Local services, and in her time at Google, she's been responsible for the look and feel of Google News, Gmail, Google Images, even Google Search itself. She's one of the most powerful women in Silicon Valley and she's a big fan of Bejeweled Blitz. Padmasree Warrior is the CTO of Cisco Systems, and was CTO of Motorola before that. She joined that company as one of very few women in its Arizona facility, and during her time as CTO, Motorola won the 2004 U.S. National Medal of Technology. She's been widely recognized for her creativity, influence, and promotion of science and technology education--especially for women. Her role at Cisco is to evangelize what's possible, and she has a team of 10,000 engineers behind her as she rides into battle. Caterina Fake is co-founder of Flickr and a highly successful serial entrepreneur. Her most recent startup, Hunch, was just purchased by eBay for a reported $80 million. At just 37 years old, she was included on Time Magazine's list of the world's 100 most influential people. She is a Founder Partner at the Founder Collective venture-capital fund, sits on the board of directors of Creative Commons, is Chairman of the Board of Etsy, and she loves duct tape and weather.
