Even More on “The Facebook and Goldman Saga: All About Section 12(g) and Section 12(h) Applications”

I held off on blogging about the Facebook situation for some time as I was afraid that I would never stop blogging about it. And now I have three entries in a week on the topic (see the last one and the first one). There continues to be a number of interesting articles written about it, including:

New York Magazine’s “Lloyd Blankfein’s Secret Facebook Feed” (this one has a fake Facebook feed that is pure genius)
Bloomberg’s “Goldman Sachs Says It May Sell, Hedge Facebook Stake”
DealBook’s “S.E.C. Questions Goldman Sachs on Offering”
Reuter’s “SEC examines rules for private firms after Facebook deal-report”
Bloomberg’s “Facebook May Face SEC Disclosure Scrutiny as Goldman Invests $450 Million”
WSJ Opinion “How Washington Defriended Investors”
NY Times’ DealBook’s “The Legal Issues in the Goldman-Facebook Deal”
