I have my reservations abut facebook and only use it to a certain extent, but i think that Mark Zuckerberg as a person actually comes out as a very likable guy that i would like to meet. What do you think about him?
Some honeymoon weeks he has. PJ
At least one of his ex-girlfriends insists he is a schmuck, and I think there is also a recent film that gives this impression, though I must admit I haven’t seen the film. (Also I’m glad none of my ex-girlfriends have felt the urge to comment on me in public.)
But isen't that a bit typical ax girlfriend behaviour, especially now that she realises she ditched a billion dollar guy. Must have been a long time since she knew him though as he has been together with the same girl for 9 years.
Yes, this was when he was a student at Harvard, whenever that was. And I agree that this is typical ex-girlfriend behavior. (Also typical ex-boyfriend behavior, I suppose.)
He does certainly not seem like some sort of casanova. To me he's quite a lovable geek. Kinda like myself :)
I probably dont need to meet him....but if I did I would probably just shake his hand and say "well done mate"...doesnt need any more does it..
can't say ,never met the person ::)
No opinion, although if I cared it would be points in his favor that he married a long-term girlfriend from before he became fabulously wealthy. I spent some time as a token poor friend in a group of fabulously wealthy young people. I don't envy him his nouveau riche-ness at a young age - will not be easy. From what I can tell (have been following the IPO), he's reasonably smart but also very fortunate in his background and extremely lucky in coming up with this exact thing at that exact time. Since then, he's made some bad decisions. Can't blame him, though - most guys are idiots and/or schmucks until at least age 30.
Other than the fact that he "invented" Facebook and is insanely rich at a relatively young age I actually know very little about the guy so I wouldn't really like to comment. On a slight tangent (and i'm not going to namedrop here) I have met some pretty famous film and music types and was quite prepared to dislike them purely because they were rich and famous. However, with a very few exceptions they were really nice people. I'll let you know what I think of Mr. Z if we ever meet.
What i notice is that he is never acting like some pompous snob surroinding himself with status symbols and cheap whores like some donald Trump kinda guy. I Personally think that entrepreneurs are really interesting as long as they don't fall in to the Trump category cause they have so much bloody drive and the interesting entrepreneurs are in it more for the heck of creating it than the money and i like that. If i met him then i would not talk about money or facebook, unless he started doing that himself, to him cause i am sure everyone else does that. I never had a problem striking up conversations with everyone from presidents to street cleaners. That is actually a really good thing to be able to when you work in tourism.
"That is actually a really good thing to be able to when you work in tourism." It is a pretty good social skill in just about any walk of life, Claus.
He has accentuated the atavistic human desire to be the centre of attention all the time. In the process, he had become a very, very rich man. Good luck to him!
> most guys are idiots and/or schmucks until at least age 30. Nonsense! We just learn to hide it better after age 30, and/or the women folk decide to ignore it more after we turn 30.
