Happy Birthday to You; Happy Birthday to You; Happy Birthday Dear Google; Happy…

You get the point. Google just celebrated its tenth birthday and the LA Times put on the party hats and invited Marissa Mayer over for some birthday cake and a chat. During a Q&A session, Mayer reveals that Google is almost done figuring out search…

I think there will be a continued focus on innovation, particularly in search. Search is an unsolved problem. We have a good 90 to 95% of the solution, but there is a lot to go in the remaining 10%.

Putting aside the bold claim that Google has solved 95% of the search "problem"–I’d argue there’s plenty more than 10% innovation left–the search engine should be on track to completely solve search by the start of 2010. After all, it’s running at 9% a year right now. 😉

OK, I’ll remove my tongue from my cheek now. If you want to get an insight as to what Google’s focus will be over the next ten years, check out the interview.

Happy Birthday Google!
