Well, what to do they say when you start believing your own BS? Does Zuckerberg actually believe investors will see him as the new Gordon Moore of social media? Seems to me that Zuckerberg needs to eat more of his own dog food, as they used to say at Microsoft. It would help Zuck to “focus his mind” on how his company is doing these days, rather than making outlandish, mathematically improbable projections, name dropping and comparing himself to Gordon Moore.

From Gizmodo:

” If you thought people were already sharing way too much on social networks, you’re in for a rough future. At least, that’s what your buddy Mark Zuckerberg thinks, and it’s probably safe to say he’s might know what he’s talking about.

Zuck dropped the knowledge in a talk at Y Combinator’s startup school today. He put it this way to Y Combinator co-founder Paul Graham:

It’s sort of social networking version of Moore’s Law. We expect this rate [of sharing] will double every 10 years. So in 10 years from now, people will be sharing about 1,000 times as many things as they do today.

That’s an awful big increase, don’t you think? Is there even 1,000 times as much stuff to share? With the advent of tech like Google Glass, maybe long, rambling videos will become more popular, as will insanely huge and boring picture albums, but still, 1,000 times? “

  1. Zuckerberg is apparently on an aggressive public relations tour. It is obvious that this is backfiring on him.. .He needs to fire his PR firm, start over with a new firm, zip his lip and disappear for awhile until the controversy subsides…He is making an idiot of himself. On the other hand, since he alone runs Facebook, he cannot disappear so this is going to get much worse.
