SXSWi2008, Day 2: Mark Zuckerberg Keynote



aside – I was in the overflow room, and was dosing off… so not too many notes. The more interesting thing would have been to be in the big room – apparently there was lots of booing, hooting, and hollering over the interview (mainly the interviewer’s fault, from all the tweets I’ve read). More news about that here (and many other places).

My poor notes:

– Facebook’s goal is to help people connect and communicate more effectively

– They are big in Columbia – people are using Facebook to plan revolts in their country – Mark never expected that to happen!

– Facebook’s goal: The world has lots of problems… Facebook is building a platform on which to solve these problems.

– They don’t focus on the money – honestly, mark sounded like a web developer/programmer who had a great idea and went with it.

    I assume you mean Colombia, the country–not Columbia, the university?

    Interesting that a techie conference doesn’t have wifi on the mainstage! With all of the people who interview in this world, why did they pick someone so clueless? I bet there are a lot of people attending who would have asked questions relevant to the audience.

    Rob – not sure about the wifi thing – for the most part, there IS wifi in every room. Something must have happened to the wifi that day in that room…? You’re right – that IS odd.

    Walt – yep – South America. But it WOULD be sorta funny if the students at Columbia U were staging some type of revolt and using Facebook to do it :-)
