Silicon Talk


Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s four-year  COO is now the first woman on the company’s board of directors. Sheryl is a top advocate for female leadership in the workplace, writing and speaking on the topic for years — particularly on how she has managed such a high-profile job while having a family.

The existing board members:

  • Mark Zuckerberg, founder and chief executive
  • Marc L. Andreessen, Andreessen Horowitz
  • Erskine B. Bowles, president emeritus, University of North Carolina system
  • James W. Breyer, Accel Partners
  • Donald E. Graham, chairman and CEO, The Washington Post Company
  • Reed Hastings, chairman and CEO, Netflix
  • Peter A. Thiel, Founders Fund.

Now if you follow us on Twitter or are a friend of mine you would know that yours truly was at Le Web 2012 and got the chance to meet Jamie Oliver and chat with the man (I kept telling anyone who cared to listen), I’m now a certified Jamie Oliver fan and about to become VP of the Jamie Oliver Fan Club. Leaders and influencers who shape the future of the internet gather at LeWeb.  This was the first time Le Web was in London – the chic and fashionable of the internet world all gathered there, on stage were industry leaders and visionaries and in the audience entrepreneurs, large companies, influencers, VC’s , journalists and bloggers.

The new Macbook Pro with Retina Display is out and we share with you a review from GBR. The Macbook Pro retails at £1,799.00 which is very high end and pricey but I guess for those who work in the imaging and visual industries this is a worthy purchase.
