    This is the first and only time you'll ever see a Hitler parody video on Pando, but... well... it's brilliant. It's so brilliant in fact that we're seriously considering featuring Hitler in our logo.

  5. Mark Zuckerberg Loves It When A Plan Comes Together

    The very first conversation I ever had with Mark Zuckerberg was in 2006. He'd just raised his round from Accel Partners. I called the Facebook offices, and he answered the phone. He came across as a mix of arrogant and naive but utterly earnest in his belief that his company would not be the next Friendster. More than that, that he would actually change the world.

  8. Facebook IPO: The Facts

    As they come in (the technosphere looks like this right now), we will be posting short snippets of important news about the Facebook IPO here on this post. So far, here's what we've got. Raising $5 billion. Mark owns over 25% of the company, making him worth roughly $25 billion on paper. There are 854 million users, with half logging on every day. Zynga accounts for 12.5 percent of Facebook's revenue. Facebook will likely see revenue decline, as they reach higher market penetration. COO Sheryl Sandberg made $32 million last year (and the shareholder breakdown). The letter from Mark Zuckerberg, on the IPO. Facebook does not plan on entering China. Facebook revenue over time and income over time. It will be a "controlled company".
