A Very Public Proposal This Leap Year  
Renault partnered with Yahoo UK to find the best marriage proposal
Renault Twingo partnered with Yahoo UK to run a competition to find a woman that was willing to propose to her boyfriend on February 29, Leap Year, as part of the tradition for women to pop the question.
The winning idea was won by Jane who proposed to Tim while taking in a view of the architecture across London, with people appearing in T-shirts spelling out the question.  The proposal was filmed and the footage was aired on the Yahoo UK home page on February 29.  Renault also gave the couple a brand new Twingo as a gift!

Hear from one of the Livestand Engineers
Like most engineers, Daivak Shah likes building things from the ground up. So naturally, when presented with the opportunity to help create Livestand for Yahoo!, Daivak jumped at the chance. The Senior Engineering Manager for Livestand describes the initiative a “content eco-system,” weaving together the vast amount of content that Yahoo has at its disposal into a rich, custom-tailored experience for consumers, advertisers and publishers. Being able to take an active role in building this game-changing user experience has kept Daivak invested in Yahoo “I feel passionate about what I’m building and I’m enjoying what I’m working on.”
