As I said, it’s fun diving down the rabbit hole looking for historical documents. Since Facebook isn’t that old, even by internet standards, there is a lot of great info one can find that was posted way back when. Why is it fascinating? Because Zuckerberg and co., thanks to Fincher and Sorkin, is now infamous.
I don’t really care to drag out the old Zuckerberg sweated during this video link because, really, who cares? He sweat a little because his hoodie was too hot.
I like this sort of thing — an interview with Mark Zuckerberg in Newsweek in 2004 which opens this way:
Winter 2004 — Current Magazine recently spoke with Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of thefacebook.com—now at almost 300 schools and attracting one million users. Zuckerberg, currently on leave from Harvard, talked about the popularity of thefacebook, his latest project and his favorite Greek hero.
Currently on leave from Harvard! Love this quote:
CM: So are you a beer guy or a mixed-drink kind of guy?
MZ: Beer. [Laughing] But I’m underage. I don’t drink. And my friends all make fun of me because I don’t have a fake ID. They’re like, “You can make websites but you can’t make a fake ID?”
