  1. Do you think the Facebook Mafia will be more like the PayPal Mafia or the Microsoft Mafia? Most of the Microsoft “founders” who started their own companies did nothing more than prove that Bill Gates was the real business genius and they were just along for the ride. But the PayPal Mafia all hit their own home runs.

  2. It would be good to see comparisons with other alumni groups. I would think Oracle’s would be the best funded and most successful.
    But, investors like to invest in people with experience so it shouldn;t be surprising that Facebook alumni can attract funding. The $271m since 2006 doesn’t seem like a lot, especially if you take out the the big hitters like the $50m Quora funding and that later stage ventures raise more money for expansion.
