Blog Review: Mark Zuckerberg & Me
It's no secret that Facebook has dealt with some serious privacy issues over past few years. Most recently, the site caused a crap storm over Facebook Places — the ability to "checkin" wherever you are and checkin other people that might be with you.
If you wade through the blogosphere you come across some interesting posts about Facebook's privacy issues. However, if you dig deep enough, you'll find an interesting take on the privacy issues including a blog called Mark Zuckerberg & Me.
The first post was about the author's picnic with Mark:
Today Mark and I went on a picnic. We packed a cooler, and I let Mark pick what he wanted to bring. He stocked the cooler with Gatorade, Ritz crackers, twelve pounds of raisins, a box of caramel corn, corn dog nuggets, a bottle of Cooks Champagne, raw hamburger and a bag of peanuts - which he dumped in after I had already put the ice in the cooler. He thought this was awfully funny as he reared his head back to laugh for much too long than was warranted by the act.Kinda random right? Well, read the entire post, then get to the last graph:
I reassured Mark that MySpace was no threat to his business, then he demanded pizza bagels. I told him we didn't pack any so he ran off into the park, arms flailing. I finally caught up to him and he was urinating into the pond in the middle of the park. I yelled at him to stop, that there were children around but instead he put his arms behind his head and said, "I'm Mark Zuckerberg. My penis' name is Ted. Say hello Ted.. say hello to...." Then he hit the ground, hard. I put my tranquilizer pistol back into my bag and went to collect the now unconscious Mark Zuckerberg. Clearly he isn't ready to go out of the house.
Well, there are two other posts. One is a bible conversation between Mark and the author and the latest one is about the Facebook IPO, with a sprinkling of hookers and Wesley Snipes.
I kid you not. Give it a read. What do you think?
