Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is selling the Facebook IPO right now in a road show. Yesterday's stop in New York left an analyst back with a bad taste. Bloomberg reports that Wedbusch analyst Michael Pachter did not like Zuckerberg's hoodie outfit.
"Wearing a hoodie to a meeting in New York on Monday with potential investors is a sign of Zuckerberg’s lack of seriousness, according to Michael Pachter, an analyst for Wedbush Securities."
Well, nobody says you need to buy into the Facebook IPO. As I remember Zuckerberg never wanted to go IPO in the first place. The financial rules made it necessary for Facebook to go public because of the high number of private share holders.
I am still on the fence, if I put some money into Facebook, but I sure do not care what Zuckerberg is wearing.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
