A $104 billion IPO heals all wounds.

Facebook cofounder Eduardo Saverin, whose breakup with the company was so violent that they made a movie about it, last night posted a congratulatory message to his once sworn enemy, Mark Zuckerberg:

On the eve of the Facebook public float, 8 plus year in the making, I as co-founder wanted to look back and cherish Facebook’s early beginning. Congrats to everyone involved in the project from day one till today, and I especially wanted to congratulate Mark Zukerberg on keeping tremendous stead-fast focus, however hard that was, on making the world a more open and connected place. 

Saverin was booted from the company in 2005.
