Well, this is all extremely ironic. Here's a speech that Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg gave yesterday to 8th graders graduating from the Belle Haven Community School in Menlo Park, California, the same city where Facebook's giant new headquarters will be located.
Zuckerberg, who showed up in his standard uniform of t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers, stressed to the kids that "there's no shortcuts" to success. (Grammar shortcuts are okay, apparently.) Then he went on to say that it's important to pick a career you really love and that "great friendships" make life "fun and meaningful." We're pretty sure dropping out of college and screwing over the friend you started your company with contradict two of the three principles, but, hey, at least he didn't butcher a cow in front of them.
