Facebook (FB) founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is breaking his post-IPO silence today in San Francisco, where he will be interviewed on-stage by Michael Arrington at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference.

What follows are 10 questions I’d like to see him asked (some of which were submitted by Fortune colleagues):

1. Do you wish Facebook had remained private?

2. Where do public shareholders rank in your list of stakeholders?

3. If you could change any one thing about the IPO process (in general, not FB-specific), what would it be?

4. Now that the Instagram acquisition is closed, what do you envision in terms of integration?

5. Is Facebook currently considering any other large acquisitions?

6. How has the stock price drop affected existing employee morale and new employee recruiting?

7. Are you still taking Mandarin lessons? Oh, and what’s your Chinese market strategy?

8. You haven’t tweeted since January. Have you read tweets since then, or is Twitter just not something you really use?

10. Would Obama or Romney be better for Silicon Valley over the next four years?
