A Silicon Valley investor for over three decades, Roger McNamee mentored Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and took great pride and joy in the company’s success… until recently.
“Now, I’m disappointed. I am embarrassed. I’m ashamed,” said McNamee. “Just as they get credit for every success, they need to be held accountable for failures. Recently, Facebook has done some things that are truly horrible, and I can longer excuse its behavior.”
Just prior to this week’s Sun Valley Wellness Festival & Conference, where he’ll talk about his New York Times bestseller, Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe, McNamee spoke with Boise Weekly about what he calls a “reckoning with the catastrophic failure of the head of one of the world’s most powerful companies to face up to the damage he’s doing.”
