Z is for Zuckerback

ABC Wednesday
January 4th, 2017
the letter is Z, for Zuckerback

Oh, I think, as I bring out my daily journal while I breakfast, - it is Wednesday, ABC Wednesday day, and the letter is Z - whatever will I write about this late in the game.

I open my Facebook to say Happy Birthday to a sweet granddaughter, and there is my answer.

Mark Zuckerback

One of the world's youngest billionaires
A computer programmer, entrepreneur and philanthropist

Five hundred million people participate in his creation, - Facebook..

How else would you know what your friends and family are doing at any given moment!!

The epitome of Marshall Mcluhan's quote

"The Media is the Message"

more Zs here at ABC Wednesday
with thanks to all who
create and maintain this
great meme.

Looking forward to A in the 20th round.

The Media is the message indeed. How else would we know one another and get pleasure from communicating?

Never thought of him! But you are so right about how he made such original advances into social media. Great post.

Well, he is a good looking boy and clever!
Thanks for your comment. The statue represents the City of Rotterdam, which was heavily bombed.It's heart was torn off it's body and it's arms were stretched to heaven crying in despair. It is in my opinion a strong and impressive piece of art.

Hildred said...

Thank you for that information Wil, - it certainly casts a different interpretation of the rawness and despair and you are right. Strong and very impressive.

Joy said...

Certainly something that completely changed the digital and real world. Clever choice for Z.

Melody said...

A very rich Z ;-)

An inspiring young man indeed!
I have been reading with great interest, Hildred, all about your forefathers and The valley, how they made dams in the river and so on;
such anteresting and fullfilling life you've lead.
i'll pop back to read more, I have a doctor's appointment to keep,
Happy New Year,
nest wishes.

FB - a mixed blessing!

I agree with Roger in the comment above. FB makes me think of what my mother said about things that were mixed blessings "You can't live with them and you can't live without them."
