I wouldn't call a wedding with 100 guests a "secret wedding".

Hardly surprising, investing in Facebook at those prices is a MAD decision (i.e. with no rational underpinning whatsoever). I repeat what I said above: Facebook IPO is a scam!

Mostly agree to all the points. Its hard to comment on worth of the stock, without much insight into monetization plans. But users are spending more and more time on Facebook. Theoretically, if Facebook introduces search feature as a way to mine data, I cannot see why they can't take a bite out of Google's (and others) revenue? (Ofcourse, this doesn't warrant 105bn market capitalization).

For a start, there are billions of Facebook shares, which means the Earning Per Share is going to be abysmal. Secondly, this whole social media business is like a castle built on sand. Indeed, it would not take much for large numbers of people to switch to other providers or turn off their accounts altogether (e.g. in protest). What's the worth of Facebook then?? Thirdly, Facebook's monetising value has yet to materialise, so the jury is still out. In view of the above, do you really believe Facebook to be worth more than Google, GM etc.? No way....

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
