CNN Surfaces an Outstanding Quote from the Zuck

December 30, 2022

Tucked in “The Year That Brought Silicon Valley Back Down to Earth” was an outstanding quotation from the chief Meta professional, Mark (the Zucker) Zuckerberg. Here’s the quote:

“Unfortunately, this did not play out the way I expected.”

The CNN article revisits what are by now old tropes and saws.

When I spotted the title, I thought a handful of topics would be mentioned; for example:

  1. The medical testing fraud
  2. The crazy “value” of wild hair styles and digital currency, lawyer parents, and disappearing billions. Poof.
  3. Assorted security issues (Yes, I am thinking of Microsoft and poisoned open source libraries. Hey, isn’t GitHub part of the Softies’ empire?)
  4. Apple’s mystical interactions with China
  5. Taylor Swift’s impact on Congressional interest in online ticket excitement
  6. An annual update on Google’s progress in solving death
  7. Amazon’s interaction with trusted third party sellers (Yes, I am thinking of retail thefts)
  8. Tesla’s outer space thinking about self driving
  9. Palantir’s ads asserting that it is the leader in artificial intelligence.

None of these made the CNN story. However, that quote from the Zuck touches some of these fascinating 2022 developments.
