Just before this mornings Facebook IPO, CEO Mark Zuckerberg and a crowd of enthusiastic fans gathered outside Wall Street to ring the official bell. During the ceremony Nasdaq’s Bob Greifeld presented Mark with a gift to commemorate the event. Guess what it was? Of course, what else do you give the guy who can afford to buy just about anything, a hoodie. As most of us know, Mark’s hoodie’s have become his signature business attire, to the despair of many a crusty Wall Street investor. So I guess it was a little bit of a jab as well as a memento.
I wont go into the IPO particulars again, as they can be viewed in many other posts available on our site today; I’ll just stick to the hoodie angle with this one. Which reminds me, I have yet to see Zuckerberg go highbred with his hoodie selection, which disappoints me. For those of you who don’t know what I am referring to, check this fine piece of craftsmanship out:
Very Nice! I wish I could get ahold of Zuckerberg to let him know. I would bet he’d cherish it. All the comfort of the classic hoodie, but the elegant style of a world-class business suit. A sure winner. Regardless of my nonsense, Bloomberg was there to cover the event and you can view exactly what they captured below. Take a look:
