Below is a video interview with the kids over at Facebook way back in 2005, as they are celebrating their 3 millionth user with a keg of Heineken. Yes, Heineken.
Being computer nerds from the East, they probably though that was the “good stuff,” but as a beer geek, my heart breaks a little to think they celebrated with that watery crap when there are so many wonderful brews available in Palo Alto. I mean Gordon Biersch is right around the corner, and I bet they could’ve scored some sweet Russian River as well.
Anyway, it’s kind of fun (and kind of pisses me off at the same time) to see a barefoot Zuckerberg on a cheap couch with Pulp Fiction and Scarface posters overhead talking about what may come. At this point Facebook had 20 employees and was only available to 800 schools, not to every teenager and soccer mom on the planet.
If you’re not up to watching the video, the HuffPo does a nice job of summing things up here.
And note to Zac – here’s your damn post! Now you can slack off at work.
