Riches and Fame-ishness

I went to a mixer at Facebook a few weeks ago, (yes that Facebook). CEO Mark Zuckerberg was there in flip-flops and an Arm and Hammer t-shirt. It's funny how someone so close in age can be in such a different world.
I was so certain that he wouldn't be there I hadn't bothered to think of what I would say. I asked him a question about using Facebook as a platform for politics but I don't think he understood my full implications and I was too flustered to explain. In retrospect, I wish I had asked him one thing: How much has being rich and famous changed the way your friends treat you?
