NO: Roger McNamee; Author, Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe
In the delightfully titled Zucked, the venture capitalist Roger McNamee recounts his role in the early development of Facebook and his disillusionment with the company.
But now McNamee has come to the conclusion that what he helped bring about is a blend of hubris and dysfunction: Zucked is partly the story of his early enthusiasm giving way to mounting alarm at Facebook's failure to match its power with responsibility, and what he has tried to do about it.
