Except this time, Mark Zuckerberg is much younger than the other founders, dominated the media landscape quicker . And he donated part of his earnings to charity, much earlier (Bill and Melinda Gates took off to India a few Window versions later).
In short, everything (concept to contribution) seems to follow Moore’s Law which was first applied to the speed of chips.
One can only hope the rise of Facebook inspire others, despite its floundering IPO.
Tech year, like dog year, ends quickly. It just seems like yesterday, when Bill Gates
tried to size up Netscape, or Murdoch MySpace and WSJ mix.
Today, half of the staff are clearing their desks, leaving behind half of My Space For-Lease. Moore’s Law is ominous when applied outside of chip manufacturing.
