Konu 1 milyar insanı birbirine bağlamak ama Mark açıklamada çok fazla kendinden, 1. tekil şahıstan bahsetmiş gibi geldi. Takımından bahsederken “my little team” demesi, I am most proud ve son cümlede We are committed yerine I am committed demesi pek şık olmamış zannımca. Böyle dedikten sonra da honor of serving you da biraz sentetik kalıyor.
