I am so seriously jealous of Zuckerberg..

...but not the one that started Facebook (although Facebook's application platform IS super cool... it took HOTorNOT 8 days to go from launch to 1MM votes per day, with a lot of support from the press.. whereas on facebook platform, it only took 4.5 days, with NO promotion at all!). Call it bubblenomics, but most friends know i am a cynic and I STILL predict that facebook will sell within the year for 3 to 10 Billion (depending on how many bidders), and my guess is that the buyer will end up being Microsoft... and if i'm wrong, they will go public within a year and a half (but like google, only because they have to due to # of shareholders), and the mkt cap will be north of 10 Bn).

But anyway... the real reason i'm writing this post is to publicly express my burning jealousy of Mark Zuckerberg's sister Randi, for her and her friend Jen's outstanding creativity. You might have thought they were a one hit wonder with their "Mac in my Top" parody music video, but they just did it again with Valleyfreude. I might be hyping it too much because I am a huge fan of the play Avenue Q that they are parodying, as friends who have seen me in my "I'm not wearing underwear today!" t-shirt know.

Avenue Q, is quite possibly the funnest musical i've ever been to. If you ever find yourself in London or NY, be sure to see it!!

Thanks to valleywag for pointing out this video

I agree, Randi has something going with those videos. She had some good mixes from the F8 event posted on Facebook.

And I think Avenue Q is playing at the Orpheum Theater beginning in August.

The new FB apps seem to clutter the profile with no real organization, but it seems like people care more about broadcasting their lives. Definitely, the news feed is doing a good job with marketing and creating a bandwagon effect.
