The crowd was very entertained by this, and every one at SXSWi was talking about it. I was at fogo de chao with nick and leslie and we saw her talking to brian solis, who took these lovely photos below. brian always takes great photos and he inspired me to get the d80
lacy’s video response
The dozens and dozens of negative tweets started coming in shortly after the keynote started, and have only gotten harsher since then. Here’s a selection:
- jonnygoldstein: did sarah lacey suck on purpose to make zuckerberg look good by comparison?
- JoynerEmily: so glad to be out of the zuckerberg keynote…..wow. train wreck. hopefully the afternoon will go better.
- brendathompson: Lacy’s interview w/Zuckerberg truly embarassing (for her) and awkward (for him and for audience).
- ceonyc: Other potentially better interviewers: The MicroMachines Guy… Helen Keller… My nana (shes 90 and has never used a computer)
Of course, Robert Scoble chimed in, saying “I’ve never seen such a bad interview of someone on stage here. Totally disappointing.”
Lacy herself responded on Twitter, saying “seriously screw all you guys. I did my best to ask a range of things.”
