@adnys @Kantrowitz: Then even most charitable trusts are not 100 percent charity by that definition @reifman @Kantrowitz: He's not giving it away, he's making a pledge to give it away over time. Gates didn't give all his away eitherThat's a misleading headline. Just because it's not a charitable trust doesn't mean the money isn't going to charity Powell Jobs has a foundation that is also an LLC, because it is more flexible in what it can do: if this is correct and the Zuckerberg foundation is an LLC, then it's probably not 501(c) and is taxable:
These are some great stories from the founder of and Twitch, I’m of the controversial opinion that giving away $45B to charity is something to be celebrated
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @mp3michael @pkedrosky: He's not giving it away right now, he's pledging to give it away over timeThe idea that it isn't philanthropy unless it's dropping bundles of cash from helicopters while blindfolded is absurd and disqualifying.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @BenedictEvans @pmarca The problem is there is no reason for Yahoo to exist. There is nothing they do better than anyone else.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @Qushery it’s not the management’s fault that the entire company has become irrelevant, and there’s no obvious way to fix that
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @om Yahoo was never fixable. That was pretty clear all along. There was a lot of money to be made pretending it was fixable.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @xeni I remember Cyber Mondays as a child, where I would sit innocently on the Terminator’s lap at the mall. I would wish for Judgment Day.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramKey takeaway: Zuckerberg getting serious about philanthropy WAY younger than Gates or Buffett did, setting new bar.

Retweeted by Mathew IngramYou can't celebrate meanness as entertainment (reality TV) & politics (Trump) then be shocked when kids are mean to each other.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @harper: amazing storyi only go to facebook to see what's trending. it's basically the digital equivalent to the people surveyed on 'family feud.'
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI’d Like to Teach the World to Ad Block Interesting first comment too.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram"That would mean that investors are valuing Yahoo's core businesses at less than zero..."
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI've been around the internet for awhile, and I still can't believe this actually became a thing for the media, bad for the journalism. No contest.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramValue of Yahoo's stake in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan: $29 a share. Value of Yahoo's core business: $3 a share“profitability has been a real drag on our valuation… Once you have profits, it’s impossible to just make stuff up.”
Retweeted by Mathew IngramTrump is good for the media bottom line, if toxic to institutional prerogatives. Which is why I don't think the media really is rising up.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingramthe media 2.0 section of WaPo... is just now wondering about this?
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI think it would be best for just about everyone if Yahoo was taken private -- that way things can be sold or set on fire as requiredAgreed is a good post on Yahoo from my Fortune colleague @danprimack -- Jerry Yang should sell: me earlier: "So the Washington Post has beaten the New York Times on traffic -- how sustainable is it?" @TheFix sadly, not in a world of growing and infinite supply that relentlessly drives cpms down. So more "eyeballs" may not mean more ad $
Retweeted by Mathew IngramAn argument that unfortunately falls apart on key dubious correlation claim that more traffic=advertising=more money
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThe biggest problem with the idea of Yahoo possibly selling its core biz is that it presumes there is a buyer. $YHOO
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI used to frame this for digital journalism students as the difference between an "audience" & a "public"
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @petersterne @tomkrazit: Pretty muchSeriously, though, what is Yahoo's core business? Email? Banner ads? Search (kind of)? Original content? Aggregated content? Inertia?

Retweeted by Mathew IngramGotta give it to Mark Zuckerberg. He is pretty much the biggest beast on the planet. Respect
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIt's not a paywall, it's a membership. Big difference ponder the deep darkness of the soul that would lead someone to find fault with Mark Zuckerberg having a baby and giving to charity.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @emilybell @amandabee @CherylOfficial: I have to confess that I have no idea who that is, but she has a great side eye-roll @amandabee: Yes, although that's based on the current value of the shares @ryanchittum: Thanks Ryan @adders: Yes, that was fun -- totally my fault. Scheduled it to pub but forgot to check for notes :-)Max Zuckerberg finds out that Dad and Mom have given away $45 billion of her inheritance:, Max is not an Instagram filter #ZuckerbergBaby

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @jyarow: Well, thank God that's cleared upSkepticism aside, it is very valuable to have one of the most powerful CEOs in the world repeating these messages.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramFor those who like to keep track, $45 billion makes Zuckerberg's foundation a hair larger than the Gates endowment: announced on Medium No wait The Player’s Tribune No wait Facebook Notes!
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI know it's only stock at this point, but still $45 billion is a lot of scratch Zuckerberg has a daughter named Max, promises at the end of incredibly long letter to give away $45 billion: his offspring rule earth in an unbroken line of succession for a thousand years

Retweeted by Mathew IngramI feel the need to repeat this: someone is on trial in Turkey for comparing Erdogan to Gollum from Lord of the Rings

Retweeted by Mathew IngramSure, but to argue that those two things don't affect each other is absurd: is quite the story. Buries the lede a little bit, but still pretty amazing @wfederman: Well, if by thing you mean it's happened a few times, then yesBased on this card he hands to autograph seekers, I think I like Tom Wilson, who was Biff in Back to the Future: @wfederman: You should check out the one from Tom Wilson, who played Biff in Back to the Future -- it's hilarious @wfederman: You guys are basically twins thoughWord to your moms, I came to drop bombs, I got more rhymes than the Bible's got psalms #PopeBars turns out that even Snapchat wants to get in on Facebook's firehose.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @WhatTheBit: I agree. And some of this is about doing things better -- writing, editing, headlines, etc. Don't want to minimize that @dustinblock: I would be interested in seeing those numbers as wellNot just clicks: the @washingtonpost says its visitors are sticking around longer on its site
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @WhatTheBit: I kind of agree with you. But do you really think that was the deciding factor?
