Saw “the social network” movie, yesterday. While it was an interesting movie and bit entertaining. They did a poor job of portraying the real Mark. I have spoken with him in person before. He is absolutely one of the smartest guys on this planet, astonishingly brilliant – an excellent businessman, technologist, and a true visionary. Talking to him really opened my eyes like never before.
BTW, he likes people calling him Zucker rather than by first name.
Yesterday, I visited Nancy, France, which is a principal city in the Lorraine region. Sar-Lor-Lux was an area that was hotly contested between French and Germany. There was a story about the last lesson in French between it was ceded to Germany between the 2 great wars.
The city has a beautiful city center, called Palace Stainslas, named after the Polish King who was one time the duke of Lorraine – Talking about complex alliance and heredity. There are many beautiful wrought-iron gates with gold coating. While Le Musée du L’Ecole de Nancy was small and unimpressive, I had a good time walking around the city and getting some fresh air.
At the end of the day, I also saw a massive motorcycle protest against Sarkozy’s policy of raising retirement from 60 to 62.
I saw this jQuery based menu (mimic Mac App-Doc).
This is pretty cool.
