Facebook in less than three hours will be on the market with an Initial Public Offer of about 38$ per share. This is going to be one of the biggest IPO ever. Facebook is expected to raise more than 18B$ with about 421 million stocks sold. Further Facebook’s employees (a few of them) and investors are going to get richer than yesterday.

Hackers do not sleep, we all now it.

Facebook decided to spend the night before IPO in the usual way with an Hackathon. With an eight hours marathon of full hacking the night will be soon overwhelmed by the morning. In this way, Tomorrow it could be one of the best day for Facebook thanks to the IPO and (maybe) to something which was developed during the Hackathon. In fact the best ideas and project for a company comes when the employees are free to think and create in the way they want, without an order, without a command. Hackathons are the best way to do it.

The Opening Bell will be rung by Mark Zuckerberg in Menlo Park at 9.30 AM Eastern time. Later at 11.00 AM the Facebook will be on the market with the symbol $FB. This is the right time to invest money in the best internet company ever built. If you want to risk something, the time has come.

From now on, Facebook must fix their first big “bug”, mobile; after that they can use their innovation and creativity to custom and improve one of the best social networks on the internet.

In Menlo Park, at Facebook HQ, there are currently hundreds engineers developing their own projects and here we feature a few pictures taken by Facebook Product Designer, Francis Luu.
