I thought Ryan did a very good job of interviewing Mark. This is the first time that I’ve heard Mark speak about his passion and ideas so openly. Mark shared some deep insights behind growing such an influencial company and communicated clearly what facebook is truly about. One thing you realise is that there is a strong sense of the vision and mission for facebook. I think that is very important to have everyone on the same page.
Mark explains makes is that people are getting increasingly more comfortable with sharing information and it essentially facebook’s goal to facilitate this human need to share. Mark thinks it will lead to a better world where everyone can understand and appreciate each other more!
Yeah I went. Hmmm interesting when i heard it too…
Another point he made was that he ensured that facebook had a technical DNA. Basically, he ensured that most of the persons coming onto the facebook team had a technical background. He feels it allows them to make better decisions. WOW! … I think that is a true gem right there.

Anyways enough of my rant.
