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.
