St. Zuckerberg Giving Alms



St Zuckerberg embarking upon his aquisition program giving alms. By Marco Succobergi.

About the painting-

Marco Succobergi, Bill Gates' disciple, never completely assimilated his master's style. In this painting Marco starts from Realist premises but manages to get closer to the Bubble feeling which produced more dynamic compositions with large numbers and figures. The subject of start-ups who were close to the faithful and the destitute is also typical of the Bubble, and this is exactly what Marco depicts in this painting. The main figure is the king of Facebook, saint Zuckerberg, who is portrayed handing out alms to the sick and needy in his throne room, under daringly coloured silk and velvet canopies. The  portrayal of the figures, their stocks folded into infinite IPOs and the colour range are indicative of the Bubble, although the nervous brush strokes suggest that the artist is not able to distance himself completely from his Realist training. Many believe the artist has used his own face to depict the King.

seems like Ocolus fans hate the deal as well. Maybe I am extrapolating too much but isnt Zuck a train wreck in slow motion. Or was the same stuff said when GOOG IPOed and bought Youtube etc?

"Implied growth" beta stocks got killed past few days. Some HF carcass sure to turn up sometime.

Actually , he reminds me of me when I was about that age. I distinctly remember rolling it in and I went out and bought the ultimate Scalextric setup that I had never been able to have has a kid. He's just cranking up the size of the 'indulgence' and pretending it all has some rational from a business viewpoint.

not sure what the fuss is about--it's brilliant. He takes free money from people prematurely pumping his multiple and uses it to essentially arm the underlying co. with a host of call options. It's classic asymmetrical risk behavior at the expense of short term shareholders (muppets) who weren't in it for the long haul anyway.
