I thought my recent visit to Facebook would be worthy of its own post: Facebook is one of the most powerful companies to have ever existed and so this post serves as a marker in time that I’ve actually been to this place.
The reason I was there was for a work event which allowed me to meet many of their employees, the great majority of them very young! The explosion in technology is still so relatively young: after all it has been only twenty years since the mainstream were able to get on the internet. I wonder what things will look like in another twenty years; will these employees be replaced and discarded by even younger kids as older people have been today? I’ll enjoy looking back on this post twenty years from now to find the answer as well as compare what Facebook looks like then compared to what it did in 2016.
