Only eating what you kill .. I tried .. but couldn’t resist

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg committed (in another year-long goal) to eat only what he kills.

Eccentric? Maybe. Being a billionaire has certain advantages.

Noble? I’m hearing. He’s secured the services of noted California chef Jesse Ziff Cool to help with the bits and pieces .. AND he orders off the vegetarian menu when eating in restaurants.

Yahoo News: “Facebook CEO promises only to eat what he kills”.

In other news .. Mr. Z supports the idea that “Kids under 13 should be allowed on Facebook”.

Actually, I don’t disagree. To deny social networking access to computer-savvy kids is a travesty  ..  place controls as you wish .. they might be in the form of parental controls or the ever-present router blocking. But collaboration in the ‘today’ space is a reality, and a necessary skill in our job markets.

While you’re at it, train the kids how to behave online .. how they want their online persona to appear to others. This reality will stem the tide of less-sensible kids taking videos of themselves shot-gunning beers or reclining on the double-yellow.

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
