Couldn't you use email, chat, or twitter instead of wasting your time working? I wasn't using FB so didn't notice.

One of the facebook founders, Mark Zuckerburg, is getting a lot of attention lately. He is a 26 yr old Harvard dropout who is now a billionaire. A movie based on Zuckerberg and the founding years of Facebook, called "The Social Network", will be released on October 1, 2010.

Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow computer science students Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. I suspect the other three Facebook founders are billionaires, too, but aren't getting much attention.

yes, it was oddly distressing for a piece there yesterday...I felt so anti social for a bit because I actually had to talk with people

Read the book, first. I haven't read it yet but I heard it's really good.

"The Accidental Billionaire" is the title I believe. It's next on my reading list.
