This week we talk about the IPO heard ’round the world, that of Dutch antivirus outfit AVG.

Wait, that’s the IPO y’all were talking about, right?

Of course, we get into some of the nitty gritty gossip around the Facebook IPO, from what the MySpace CEO had to say about it to how Mr. Mark Zuckerberg used some clever contractual maneuvers to maintain control of the company and its board.

And what would VB Weekly be without a little fun and games? We chat about our Dean Takahashi’s recent exclusive interview with game creator Lord British, a.k.a. Richard Garriott, who says he’ll be writing his next video from space. No kidding.
