Facebook Debate: Valuation, Value To Developers and Random Ad Hominem Attacks

I moderated a panel on Tuesday at the Graphing Social Patterns conference. Dave McClure, a panelist, called it “the most fun, crazy, 90-mph rollercoaster, good time panel session i’ve EVER had the pleasure to be on.” I’m not sure I agree it was the best panel ever, but we had a lively discussion about the value of Facebook, the value of Facebook platform to developers, what should be done about black hat developers, and Jason Calacanis, in addition to his insightful comments, threw in a few entertaining personal attacks as well. Thanks to Robert Scoble, Dave McClure, Jason Calacanis and Rodney Rumford for their participation. Video of the session is below.
