Marissa Mayer at LeWeb 2011: Google+ was a “pleasant surprise”

In the past few years Marissa Mayer returned to Paris each year to talk on stage of LeWeb to Michael Arrington of Techcrunch. Now Arrington has left TechCrunch but still is one of the big faces at a conference like LeWeb. This year however he didn’t interview, one of his ‘peers’, Crunchfund’s MG Siegler asked the questions, which helped the interview to be honest.

Mayer talked about several topics, from Google+ and Check-deals to her own role at Google, which has been less prominent the past year. Mayer also talked about Google+, calling it a “pleasant surprise”.
