It was March 9th 2008 – SXSW. Keynote was Sarah Lacy talking to Mark Zuckerberg. What was thought to be a standard interview at first turns into a interesting media event turning onto the business reporter. Of course, it was the audience that turned this from a “Bad interview” into a fracas.
“Other than really rough interviews, what are the toughest obstacles Facebook faces?” That pretty much summed up the whole interview. Well, that and the rejoicing that was done afterward.
Other events in Tech history: Cherry OS PowerPC Emulator, ashes of Gene Roddenberry and the end of the dot com boom. We also hear about the discontinuance of the Apple IIcx, the first CeBIT and Polaroid ending the production of Instamatic Cameras.
