I guess Soros let him have his seat...
Just say no to MacMall.  They don't honor their promotions and won't respond to customer inquiries.  There are better retailers out there.

you can't create something from nothing....but, yes he did do well with his website.
but he won't do this again i think. facebook will die slowly like AOL is doing but zuckerberg will just do other ventures with his large amount of cash. i think he is more bill gates than steve jobs.

They're been pretty irrelevant for quite a while now.

It seems as if 90% of the people I talk to use yahoo for email. I never got onto the Yahoo bandwagon.

I tried to figure out who is who in the photo. One unknown person behind Zuckerberg.

clockwise: Barack Obama, Steve Jobs, John Doerr, Ann Doerr, Eric Schmidt, Art Levinson, John Chambers, Steve Westl, Larry Ellison, Reed Hastings, John Hennessy, Carol Bartz, Dick Costolo, Unknown, Mark Zuckerberg

I had a hard time deciding on that one. The woman at the near end of the table was also unknown so I was thinking they were the hosts. Both Westl and Doerr part their hair the same and have similar hair color and build. Doerr does wear glasses, not sure about Westl. You could be right it does look like him a bit.

Doerr is to Ellison's right (he does wear glasses - he was a patient of mine). I'm an Optometrist.

That's good in this case 'cause Obama is left-handed. And Zuckerberg to his right?

And where's Meg Whitnone and Carly Fiorentino?

Microsoft Technology Center is in Mountainview, I would guess a Microsoft bigshot would have been available

I forgot, all the bigshots retired, quit or got fired (except for one).

Many thanks to your description! It's helpful to me.
