I often sit back and wonder. Communities like PHP Freaks have been around long before the inception of Facebook. We were teaching people how to code back when PHP was breaking the ground. When Zuck was sitting in his dorm room cranking away at code (hahah, LOL) do you think he and his homies were using PHP Freaks under some unknown names to learn how to build their site? I find it hard not to believe that in some capacity, sites like PHPFreaks helped build the main platforms that the internet is hobbling over these days.
Funny thing is, when I jokingly submitted my online job application last year to Facebook for an Applications Operations Engineer - all I put in the box was "Hi, I'm phpfreak, founder of PHPFreaks.com" in their online form. I got a call the very next day and that initiated a 5 phase interview - even without having a formal resume. Jokingly I breezed through the first 4 interviews, then got serious and screwed it up somehow. I'm glad I'm not there now, but at some point, it was almost a reality.
They must know who we are and what we do.
