FaceBook Nation


The other day, Meg Whitman urged me to see Waiting for Superman. Instead, I saw The Social Network. That movie got me thinking; if Meg is qualified to be governor because she ran eBay, then wow! What about Mark Zuckerberg? While Meg took over eBay after it was already up and running, Mark started Facebook from scratch. Facebook is worth more than eBay, and will soon be worth much, much more, according to market analysts.

If logic dictates that Meg’s work at eBay qualifies her for governor, shouldn’t Mark’s much better performance at Facebook qualify him for the presidency? It’s hard to argue with that logic.

See the movie, and see what I mean.
