Today we're celebrating Javier Olivan's 10 year anniversary of joining Facebook! Javi has been one of the most influential people in Facebook's history. Javi, thank you for being a great friend and partner, and for everything you do to bring the world closer together.
Today we announced Oculus Go -- a standalone headset that doesn't require you to snap in a phone or attach a cable. It's the most accessible virtual reality experience we've ever built. #OC4
Carousels have gotten a lot more awesome since I was a kid.
For shabbat tonight, we gave Max a kiddush cup that has been in our family for almost 100 years. Her great-great-grandfather Max got it after our family immigrated here and it has been passed down through our family ever since.
I think Max is really starting to take after me since I've been on paternity leave.
Baby cuddles are the best.
Priscilla and I are so happy to welcome our daughter August!
Our first data center in Prineville, Oregon was in the path of totality during today's solar eclipse.
Our new daughter is coming soon so I'm planning to take two months of paternity leave. I'm looking forward to bonding with our new little one and taking Max on adventures. I'm pretty sure the office will still be standing when I get back.
Every summer we run Facebook Academy to connect high school juniors from our local community in Menlo Park and East Palo Alto with mentors so they can get experience working in the tech industry. Congrats to this year's graduates and good luck at school next year!
One of my favorite shots on top of a huge healthy glacier in Alaska with a pregnant Priscilla a couple weeks back.
I spent the afternoon at Glacier National Park in Montana with some National Park Service Rangers. Gracie the Bark Ranger is a wildlife service dog who helps keep away the mountain goats and bears from the visitors. She is a much better trained herding dog than Beast. (Sorry Beast.)
On the road in South Dakota.
Priscilla and I spent a few days in Alaska as part of the Year of Travel challenge. It's beautiful here.
Aquila's second successful flight! In this test, it flew for 1 hour and 46 minutes over the desert and landed smoothly near Yuma, Arizona. Aquila is our solar-powered airplane that will beam internet connectivity across the world.
I'm at the Heartland Pride Festival in Omaha, Nebraska. Happy Pride to everyone celebrating this weekend in Omaha and across the country! 🌈
I'm visiting small towns in Iowa, and just stopped in Wilton, population 2,800.
I had my first Iftar dinner with a group of Somali refugees in Minneapolis. Thanks to my hosts for being so gracious at the very end of Ramadan. I left impressed by your strength and resilience to build a new life in an unfamiliar place, and you are a powerful reminder of why this country is so great.
