Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook Reveals Much on 60 Minutes

September 27, 2010

If you missed the 60 Minutes interview with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, here are some things you need to know:

  • The engineers engage in hackathons - allowing engineers to compete on programming tasks
  • Speed chess and all-night programming are activities often engaged in
  • The company has a new way of displaying profile pages which is more photo-centric
  • A dozen programmers worked on this redesign in a war-room littered with used toothpaste tubes and dirty plates
  • Over 200,000 people access Facebook from mobile devices
  • Messaging is one of the latest products - something Facebook calls the ultimate switchboard
  • Mark thinks these messages are slowly replacing email
  • Gmail was not the target of Facebook's messaging platform
Mark was hit with questions regarding privacy - and he responded by saying advertisers have no access to people's information and they never use it.

Interviewer Lesley Stahl asked about apps which access information of a personal nature and Zuckerberg explained that if apps do something they aren't supposed to like invading privacy, they are shut down.

Zuckerberg says they don't get it right every time but they keep trying to get better.

He further explained that privacy and control over personal information is one of the most important things on the Internet.

Many of Google's top employees have defected to Facebook - 200 ex-Googlers now work at Facebook. Mark explained that social adds to the experience of virtually everything you do online.

Here is the two-part interview and an article worth reading from CNET's Caroline McCarthy. Here is video1 and video 2 if the videos below don't workl

ITEXPO West 2010 News and Interviews

September 22, 2010

ITEXPO is almost here - and there will be lots of news broken at this event based upon what my team tells me. In addition, some of the early news on the event is beginning to break and I hope to see you October 4-6, 2010 in Los Angeles.

Check out this article on Aculab's new products, AMS Server & ApplianX IP Gateway 2.2 to be released at the show. AMS Server gives developers more choices for creating telephony-based applications through its API support of both C# and Python, the preferred languages of many business-oriented application writers.

So Many Reasons to Attend ITEXPO in 13 Days

Dear Colleague,



Google in Your Brain and ITEXPO Update

September 8, 2010

For some reason when I hear Sergey Brin wants Google to be the third half of my brain I feel a bit freaked out. Partially because they already know what everyone wants, desires - how often we search for our Exes, how often we check porn, etc. Then again, the next step seems to be logically implanting themselves in our heads so why am I surprised?

I just hope the third brain they put in me is out of Beta.

Then again, I could use some help from the Google guys when keeping track of all the excitement and new events surrounding ITEXPO.

Apple, Sony, Microsoft, Google and ITEXPO News September 1, 2010

September 2, 2010

It has been an extremely exciting week again for tech news and moreover for me personally as I got a chance to open up my Sony Dash and it is a very cool addition to my desktop as it allows me to view my photos and take advantage of widgets of all kinds which among other thinks allow me to see the pandas at the San Diego Zoo. This handy gadget has a slew of communications, social networking and calendar features as well but for now, I just want to see the pandas.

 

The big news from yesterday of course was Steve Jobs onstage pushing a slew of new iPods and a rental-only model for Apple TV and a social network integrated into iTunes.
