Despite the fact that Drama 2.0 is currently fighting some sort of cold bug, I found the energy to get out of bed tonight and watch the . The word that best describes the interview: painful. It was so horrid that couldn’t help but note how bad it was.

Obviously, to give Zuckerberg the benefit of the doubt, he’s young and this is new territory for him. But the interview was revealing nonetheless. The things that stood out most to me:

I’m going back to sleep now. Hopefully I won’t have any nightmares of the robotic CEO with no sense of humor. I only take solace in the fact that, if Facebook’s investors have any intelligence, they’ll be experiencing worse nightmares than I.

Update: If Hasbro’s attorneys were watching, the segment on the “Scrabble” Facebook application (which I’m assuming showed Scrabulous - I don’t know because I’m not on Facebook) gives Hasbro even more ammunition for any possible legal action against Scrabulous.

    While I mostly agree with you, I thought Zuckerberg was quite composed, and behaved quite smartly. This is not a lucky hipster like Kevin Rose or Jakob Lodwick.

    400 employees. No real way to monetize. And Web 1.0 perks? Can you IMAGINE their burn rate? If they don’t figure out how to get the cash coming in, it’s going to look like the Hindenberg when it goes down.
