eBay CEO goes on the record, sees growing opportunities for company
According to this Dow Jones story in the WSJ (subscription required), eBay CEO Meg Whitman answered questions for over an hour at the Goldman Sachs Internet Conference, including admitting that she underestimated how much attention her decision would get if word leaked out that she had gone thru an afternoon interview with Disney for the CEO position, the only company she would have considered leaving eBay for:
"I think we feel like we're still at the beginning of the growth curve in the U.S.," Whitman said...."We are an entirely new business," she said, referring to its online auctions. "There is no playbook here."
