Facebook quote in the LAST issue of Business 2.0

I was recently quoted in the last issue of Business 2.0 – fun ;-)

Link: The Facebook economy – Aug. 23, 2007.

Not everyone is drinking the Kool-Aid. Andrew Chen, an entrepreneur-in-residence at Mohr Davidow Ventures, thinks the revenue opportunity is still unproven. "The question is whether large-brand advertisers will feel like it’s a good idea to buy space on still relatively small pieces of real estate," Chen says. "I would imagine they’d want to deal directly with Facebook." The company, after all, already generates an estimated $150 million in ad revenue on its own.

UPDATE: Doh, it looks like there will be one more. Somehow getting a quote in the next to last issue doesn’t seem as cool!
