Facebook filed to go public with the SEC this week. More below, but let’s just say there are going to be a lot of new millionaires in America that will hopefully start investing in more startups. I can only see this improving the support for new business in America with an influx of new investors. Or so I hope.
Most New Yorkers have a big Giants game on their mind for Sunday, I’m sure it will be a great game, but I’m just not that excited for either team to win. All I can hope for is that this Super Bowl is an exciting game and the commercials are good. Off to finish the week on a strong note, and catch you up with the Silicon Alley Roundup… Straight from Times Square.
Roundup Reads for the Week:
•The big, long awaited news is Facebook this week. I am actually already tired of hearing about it, but until that expected late May date that officially marks their entry into the public market, we’ll have a lot. Techcrunch is practically having a wet dream over it all, so here is their endless scroll of stories and Facebook IPO roundup, including Zuck’s face in their logo (seriously? You know what’s cool? Getting written up in Techcrunch. You know what’s really cool? Getting your face in Techcrunch’s logo.)
The only story I really appreciated (after reading the NY Times one first), was about the Facebook graffiti artist that took his payment in stock that could be worth up to $200 Million. Betabeat covers it here: “Facebook Graffiti Artist May Be Worth $200 M, Is Pals With Porn Star Sasha Grey.” Oh, and I guess I did appreciate this CNBC post about how Zuck could potentially leverage debt to never have to pay taxes.
