David Marcus – Vice President von Facebook für Messaging Produkte, spricht bei Recode über die Zukunft und Pläne von Facebook bei Bots.
Pikantes Detail: David Marcus war als Jugentlicher und junger Erwachsener in der Schweiz. Gefragt zum Startup Klima sagt er im oberen Interview:
How do you get into tech entrepreneurship from France? Did you go to school to be, were you interested in tech from your childhood?
I actually fell into tech very young. So, I was fortunate enough to have access to a PC when I was 8 years old, and was completely fascinated by the world of technology from that age. And then I grew up in Switzerland actually. I was born in Paris, stayed there until my early teens, moved to Switzerland after that with my parents, and then followed the typical Swiss framework of “you’re going to work in a bank” or something. But went to university in Geneva. Then dropped off for family reasons, where I needed to go to work to support a family overnight, and ended up working in a bank for a year, which I really didn’t like.
I didn’t know that was a real thing that happened. I thought that was just a cliché.
No, no. It’s not.
It’s the banker thing.
