Zuckerberg in Train Wreck

The Mark Zuckerberg interview was by all accounts a train-wreck. He’s is not the most charismatic figure but most of the blame can be laid at interviewer Sarah Lacy. Her questions were mainly business, which to an audience of geeks was misjudged. Her interview style was flirtatious, provocative and rude. Many times she was booed by the audience. At one point she asked: “If I’m so terrible, why don’t you ask the questions” and later “Send me an email about why I suck so bad”, someone stood up and asked for her email address. She reminded me of the late not so great, Paula Yates.

If you go to the SXSW site and click the ‘SXSW 2008 INTERACTIVE COVERAGE’ link you can watch the whole thing in their popup video player.

Doug McClure gives a really funny account of it on his blog.
