First sister of Facebook

Things are progressing well here in the hospital — Milan is sure taking his sweet time getting here. Maryam just got an epidural, so things are great. Enough so to give everyone an update.

Thanks to Rocky for getting my interview up with Randi Zuckerberg. She’s the director of business development at Facebook.

We have a fun chat about Facebook and the fun of being in one of the most famous social software families (her brother, Mark, is CEO of Facebook).

  1. Maryam is in the middle of delivering a baby, and you’re blogging??????

    What the ….?

    You are lucky she’s not biting your head off. Count yourself blessed.

    Good luck with the birth and the beginning of a new life!

  3. Isn’t it great how with one post you can reach countless people and avoid all those phone calls and a zillion people running up to the hospital for news!! :)

    Maryam must be a champ to have waited so long for the epideral. Good for her! I hope it starts progressing faster, so you all don’t get totally exhausted.

    Robert, maybe you could send Big Brother Patrick to TC40 with a smaller video camera, to gather everybody’s good wishes for posterity.

  5. If I’d been blogging when my wife went into labour with our daughter she’d have removed my testicles with a rusty implement!

    Mind you, she did give birth ten minutes after arriving at the hospital, so me blogging would have meant I’d have missed the birth, but… y’know :)

  7. The Privethical Divide

    An interesting confrontation of two different perspectives on the very same subject this morning : on the left hand, french buddy Jeremt Fain, who raises his concerns about online privacy; on the right hand, american blogger Robert Scobble, who’ s

  8. I think facebook rocks. I think the notion that they are “open to the users” is significantly curtailed by the fact that even their blog is walled in the garden. I still think the company is amazing. Great video!

  10. Great interview but more importantly congrats on a new edition and an expansion in your most important role (Husband and Father). Tech is great but family is ultimately what it is all about, something when you first hold that precious bundle in your arms I am sure you will agree with. I wish you and your whole family the best Robert with the new baby.

  13. Randi: “Basically there are two kinds of media: new media and old media”. What the hell is she on? What other kinds of media is there?

    If this is the director of biz dev for Facebook, I predict a rollout of Hello Kitty Facebook in the next 6 months. Film at 11. FTW.

  15. Robert, Congratulations. I too am a new father and need your help. If I can demonstrate that Ipod touch can be used as baby monitor my wife will give me the green light on its purchase. Thought you could pull this off. Looking for updates on the family, love your work. Steve

  17. My iPhone is a LIFE SAVER with my son. Whenever he cries, I can zip on to YouTube and pull up the ‘Lion Sleeps Tonight’ by a dancing hippo and a silly dog cartoon. Talk about a high tech pacifier.

    Hilarious.
