Facebook routinely hosts “tech talks” at its new downtown Seattle office space, a way to engage with the community and recruit smart engineers. But today’s talk will feature a special guest: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

As Xconomy reports, the free event (which has already sold out) is being touted as a Q&A with developers. (In other words, a one-of-a-kind recruiting event).

Zuckerberg’s appearance in Seattle got us thinking: What would you ask the Harvard drop out?

After all, it is not every day that the executive of an Internet juggernaut, now valued at some $70 billion, pops into town?

The 7-year-old company, which now boasts 700 million members, has certainly been in the news recently.

Facebook just named Netflix CEO Reed Hastings to its board, sparking speculation that the social networking powerhouse might move deeper into online video or bolster its partnership with Microsoft (where Hastings also serves as a director).

It also faces new competition from Google, which just rolled out its Google+ social networking features. It would also be interesting to hear Zuckerberg’s views on topics such as a Facebook IPO, privacy and mobile.

Let us know if you are attending tonight’s event, and stop back at GeekWire to share your thoughts about his talk. Or, add a question below which you’d ask the billionaire if you had the chance.
