Here’s my interview with Chris Hughes, one of the three co-founders of Facebook — and the only one to graduate Harvard. An Ivy League degree and a great business at 23. Not too shabby.
I interviewed him last summer on the Stanford campus. This video was on my post on July 26. (Recently, Chris left Facebook and is doing various projects including work on the Obama camaign.)
Chris gives a history of the wildly successful site which was video-less back then and provides a glimpse into the some of the developments that have just been announced.
Video is just one part of the new Facebook. Here’s a good overview from Dan Farber at ZDNet.
Check out these posts on the video elements of the updated Facebook from Liz Gannes at NewTeeVee and Marshall Kirkpatrick at Splashcast. And, don’t miss Newsweek’s Steve Levy on Facebook vs. MySpace in the current issue.
