Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg made a guest appearance on The Simpsons, a debut in which he played himself. In the scene, Lisa is trying to convince a friend to stay in school, so she brings him to meet some entrepreneurs. They end up meeting Zuckerberg and he tells them about all of the successful entrepreneurs that never finished college. To top things off, the janitor is the only one at the conference that actually graduated from school.
While this is a comedy (written by the The Simpsons’ writers) this message is quite different then the one Zuckerberg was getting out last week when he appeared on Oprah and donated $100 million in Facebook stock to Newark’s public school system.
