By Adam RubenOct. 31, 2018 , 9:00 AM A few years ago, the biotech company where I work announced a Halloween costume contest. I think it might have been the first time we’d had one, and the proclamation wasn’t exactly met with enthusiasm. After all, a workplace costume contest is a dicey affair. You spend most days convincing your co-workers that you’re a serious colleague, then—1 day a year—hey! Look at me! I’m a sexy cat! But a costume contest at a science workplace is particularly fraught. It may sound innocuous and fun, but your colleagues and superiors are assessing the cleverness of your costume as a proxy for your general ingenuity—or, at least, you fear that they are. My co-workers and I carefully considered what the ideal costume could be. It had to be something nerdy, something dignified yet whimsical, something germane to our research. It had to belie enough effort to not look half-assed, but not so much effort as to raise … [Read more...] about Happy Science-o-ween!

Yesterday I wrote about how differently Brian Acton and David Marcus saw the WhatsApp acquisition, and what it meant for Facebook’s future. Several others picked up on a different part of Marcus’ memo, though, and It’s worth noting as well. The section that caught so much attention is the very end: As a former lifelong entrepreneur and founder, there’s no other large company I’d work at, and no other leader I’d work for. I want to work on hard problems that positively impact the lives of billions of people around the world. And Facebook is truly the only company that’s singularly about people. Not about selling devices. Not about delivering goods with less friction. Not about entertaining you. Not about helping you find information. Just about people. It makes it hard sometimes because people don’t always behave in predictable ways (algorithms do), but it’s so worth it. Because connecting people is a noble mission, and the bad is … [Read more...] about Facebook is pushing out its most creative skeptics
