Lacy’s rsponse to the ‘disaster’

As online Video Watch said:

When the collective geekdom of the United States shows up in one place and spends half their time in line they have a lot of extra time to bitch on their mobile devices. That said, it’s probably still fair to label Sarah Lacy’s interview of Mark Zuckerberg (watch here) at SXSW an unmitigated disaster.
You could almost feel bad for Sarah, Twitter and Techmeme quickly spread news about how bad the interview was; it was variously labeled a “train wreck,” a “disaster,” and an “out-and-out bomb,” but she doesn’t do much to redeem herself the interview above. At least she “feel[s] fine about it as a journalist” and her “Amazon rank is higher than ever.”

Slightly off topic: a social network is NOT a blog. The social network host does not and should not continually be engaged with the members. That’s like having your mother hovering around outside your bedroom door when you have your little friends over to play. Every time Zuckerberg gets ‘engaged’ with the membership, it goes horribly wrong. Go back to what you are meant to do, Mark, which is implement your vision of a social network, and let the bloggers worry about brand image and PR and engagement. That’s what they are meant to do.
