face story book
okay, so having joined the facebook, i should probably tell my facebook story. when the company i work for was first starting out we were doing the r of r&d for the mova contour facial motion capture system. which has been used for the incredible hulk and another famous movie that i'm not sure i can mention yet by name for curiously stupid hollywood reasons. so i better button it in case i get sued. anywho, it got 5 golden globe nominations but didn't win any. and 13 academy award nominations. so yeah anywho, we needed to work in the dark. so we rented the conference room and the windowless closets in the center of a floor of a building in downtown palo alto. we bribed the owner with a refrigerator to get the space. a few of the offices with windows were taken up by a consulting firm. and the rest of the floor started empty but was steadily filled by beautiful young people working for this social networking web site called facebook. they had lunch and dinner catered. and drank our sodas out of our refrigerator. and had their security people politely come over and ask us not to steal food from their buffets. jerks. obviously, this was a company that was going absolutely nowhere.
