Homeless to $200 million via Facebook:

A graffiti artist who decorated the walls of Facebook’s headquarters seven years ago is set for a $US200m windfall when the social network makes its initial public offering (IPO).

David Choe, 35, reportedly thought the social network was “ridiculous and pointless”, but nonetheless accepted a few thousand pounds of shares as payment when he was commissioned by Sean Parker, Facebook’s then president.

The decision will make Mr Choe one of at least 1000 of Facebook’s early employees and advisers who were rewarded in shares and who are now set to cash in.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
