I listened to a little of the first Zuckerberg hearing

What struck me was how "Eddie Haskell" he acted.

He said repeatedly "A company that I started in my dorm room". As if he's still a kid. Like he's still learning. BULLSHIT

"Our main mission at Facebook is connecting families and friends". BULLSHIT They exist to sell your data.

1. He started it to let students rate pics as hot or not

"connecting families and friends"



FaceMash, Facebook’s predecessor, opened in 2003. Developed by Mark Zuckerberg, he wrote the software for the Facemash website when he was in his second year of college. The website was set up as a type of "hot or not" game for Harvard students. The website allowed visitors to compare two student pictures side-by-side and let them decide who was hot or not.[8]

While writing the software, Mark Zuckerberg wrote the following blog entries:[9]

I'm a little intoxicated, not gonna lie. So what if it's not even 10 pm and it's a Tuesday night? What? The Kirkland dormitory facebook is open on my desktop and some of these people have pretty horrendiedous facebook pics. I almost want to put some of these faces next to pictures of some farm animals and have people vote on which is more attractive.

Yea, it's on. I'm not exactly sure how the farm animals are going to fit into this whole thing (you can't really ever be sure with farm animals...), but I like the idea of comparing two people together.

3. He also hacked his own school paper

and other unethical *stuff* http://www.businessinsider.com/mark-zuckerbergs-secret-ims-from-college-2014-2

Youth is no excuse either. By your early 20s you should know whats right and wrong. If you have that sense of entitlement in college, thats usually going to carry on throughout your life, unless a difficult life event knocks you upside the head.

4. I think if reasonable liberal taxes on business and

personal income along with proper regulation has been in place, "kids" and others like Zuckerberg would never have become wealthy and powerful enough to undermine democracy. Control would have been in the hands of citizens through a progressive government.

And...

If wishes be horses this beggar would ride.
