At the “Point of Inflection” at Facebook’s Lunch 2.0

Facebook HQ
(Facebook HQ in Downtown Palo Alto (Map), 1 block from the cafeteria where the Lunch 2.0 was held)

Facebook hosted Lunch 2.0 (it was really a Dinner) at their headquarters two nights ago, Scoble called this a ‘point of inflection:

“…last night I was at the Facebook party aka “Lunch 2.0.” I met Mark Zuckerberg and his sister, Randi, and a ton of Facebook employees and executives. It is one of those parties that in about five years we’ll all be looking back on as a major inflection point in the valley. I stayed until the very end. In fact, even after the party ended a small group of us hang outside of Facebook’s offices and kept talking about what is going to happen in social networking.”

Today, there’s a lot of discussion about opena and closed platforms, Plaxo moving into the open platform network business, and now Techcrunch points at Yahoo needs a solution…and fast.

It was crowded, hot, but energy packed, I even met the founder of the Million Dollar homepage. I walked into corporate, and noticed the average age was below 25, I felt old. What’s the greatest part of the Facebook campus? The graffiti art on all the walls (although some was downright scary)

Oh and add me as your Facebook contact, I’ll add you back, just don’t “Chomp me”
