About Zuckerberg

So…about the Zuckerberg’s proposed philanthropy plans: perhaps we could hold off on all the applause until the couple have actually accomplished something? 1

To start with let’s take a closer look at the LLC (actually a 8-K filing) the Zuckerbergs created. And the term ‘LLC’ is important here because it is a straight up admission that the organization Zuckerberg intends to fund is not a charitable organization. In contrast to, say, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is a bona fide 501c3 nonprofit.

Facebook boy may in the long run actually do something with this LLC other than use it as a shell game to –in essence– launder his own money. But until he actually builds something useful for the world I’ll remain skeptical – he is, after all, a lynchpin the private sector potion of our surveillance society.

Moreover, shouldn’t the press spend a little more time on examining details rather than kowtowing to yet another of Zuckerberg’s announcements, more than a few of which in the past have turned out to be…how should I put this? Lies?

Something to say...?
