Jimmy Fallon to Sean Parker: Is Facebook the End Game?

Complete video at:

“Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon asks Facebook’s first president Sean Parker if he believes the Internet juggernaut is the end game for social networking services. “It would be incredibly presumptuous and self-serving of me to believe Facebook was the end of history,” says Parker. “The only way it could possibly be the end of history is if it becomes an artificial super-intelligence that takes over the world.”

NExTWORK is a one-day, interdisciplinary conference that will feature world-renowned business leaders, technologists, and thinkers exploring the promise and peril of the network’s future, as well as the most pressing digital issues and opportunities today.

Sean Parker is an entrepreneur with a record of launching genre-defining companies that reinvent ways to spread information online. In 1999, at the age of 19, Parker co-founded Napster and changed how people think about and share music. Two years later, Parker co-founded Plaxo, pioneering viral engineering technology for updating contact information. Parker served as Plaxo’s president until 2004, when he joined with Mark Zuckerberg to develop the online social network Facebook. Parker was Facebook’s founding president, helping transform that small start-up into an industry giant.

Parker’s latest venture is Causes, which he co-founded in 2007, and which has become the largest online platform for grassroots activism and philanthropy. At Founders Fund, Parker searches for and fosters the same spirit of innovation that he saw at Facebook, Plaxo, and Causes in new company founders, and has provided essential mentorship to the portfolio companies, including helping develop Alamofire’s wildly popular PackRat.
