Zuck's coming for you, Ellison.

Facebook founder and billionaire Mark Zuckerberg (a human who is 30-and-one-half years-old) is reportedly the buyer of 375 acres on the North Shore of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, a parcel that was recently on the market for $75M. According to a "source" of Pacific Business News, the acreage that Zuckerberg bought for a "likely" $66M is deeded and entitled to hold "80 homesites with approved roads," meaning the Zuck could very well be poised to create his own Hawaiian mega-compound on what the brokerbabble describes as "the most picturesque of the Hawaiian Islands." [...] Perhaps the Zuck is finally taking cues from fellow tech titan Larry Ellison—and, really, he's the only person Zuckerberg, who is worth some $33 billion, can look up to: the Oracle founder has a net worth of $46B, owns no less than 10 properties on Malibu's "Billionaire's Row," and spends his free time playing God on his own 90,000-acre Hawaiian island, which he bought for some $300M in 2012.

Did Mark Zuckerberg Just Drop $66M on 375 Acres in Hawaii? [Curbed]

What if Mark Zuckerberg wore the Hannibal Lechter mask from Silence of the Lambs to the Facebook roadshow? Would things have turned out differently? If Zuckerberg had left the hoodie at home? One guy says yes. "I felt that had Mr. Zuckerberg worn a jacket instead of a hoodie (showing them that he respected them enough to "dress up"), he would have made a statement to them that he cares about their needs, and will act in their best interest. He chose not to make that statement, and the current share price demonstrates that investors have chosen not to support Facebook shares. All of this is iterative. Had Facebook issued 10 million shares instead of 421 million, the stock would probably be much higher. However, had Mr. Zuckerberg worn a jacket and reassured investors that he is aligned with their expectations, perhaps more people would be stepping in to buy now." So...yeah.
