FACEBOOK

Mark Zuckerberg: president of the billionaire boys club.  How about adding me, Richie Rich?

I saw the movie "The Social Network" today.

I've been wanting to blog about Facebook for a while so now seems like the time. But it'll probably have to be in two parts.

Today I want to talk about the film and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg; next time I want to talk about the social and personal psychology that social networking dredges up.

Okay, the movie. I joked to my friends (the real ones, not the anonymous cyber ones), that now that the Facebook founder was a public figure, I knew who to kill. Alright, I admit that's black humor. But after seeing the film -- if it's even 50 percent accurate -- I'm just not feeling any love for this kid.

He halfway swiped the idea -- which is the American way, I guess -- and it seems he chatters incessantly like he swallowed a jarful of crickets. Lot's of Harvard-grade sarcastic stuff that you hope one of his close relatives will slap him for.

Then, when the movie was ending, it gave a little update on each of the lead characters. Zuckerberg's said something like: "Mark Zuckerberg is the world's youngest billionaire."

This annoys me on so many levels I'd need an elevator to get to them all -- not the least of which being I don't like to hear of anyone sitting on that much money when there are people starving in the world.

I know he's done some fairly significant philanthropy, but, y'know, he could part with 95% of his wealth and still live like a sultan. I'll never be comfortable with anyone being so filthy rich. (He apparently has always claimed Facebook isn't about the money. As the late author William S. Burroughs once said: "By their fruits shall ye know them, not their disclaimers.")

But the other thing that steamed my onions was this: This kid came up with (well, half stole the idea) something that is pretty cool. It's "fun." Okay. Nice one. He didn't come up with the sure-bet cure for cancer or a dead-certain way to get America acting like a civilized member of the United Nations.

He realized that people want to be popular, gossip, look at photos, waste time at work, hook up, gloss over their insecurities... that kind of stuff. I've been howling at the moon about that nonsense for years and nobody tossed me a dime! Oh well, so it goes. (Before you write your impassioned comment pointing out that I didn't invent Facebook, please note that I'm being facetious.)

But seriously: Is it any wonder our economy doesn't work? I don't think you have to have a PhD in economics to know it doesn't work because it isn't based on any sort of fairness or sanity. It rewards nutty stuff, pays banks to fail, gives massive welfare to corporations, and makes an intelligent kid into a billionaire superstar.

We lack an economy with good priorities. If it was a human being, you'd have it locked up... without its laptop!

I'd better stop. The vein on my neck is ready to pop.

Take care and keep smiling,
Adrian Zupp

  1. It all started when I was logged in to the Harvard website, where I was listening in to the conversations of the Harvard students. One of these students was Mark Zuckerberg who was talking about Face Smash and he had just broken up with his girlfriend at the time, so I struck up a conversation with this Mark Zuckerberg. He was talking about creating a dating site. I thought this was a bit odd - a pie in the sky idea since he had just broken up with his girlfriend and he was slagging her off - calling her a bitch and a whore.
    dave talked to Mark about the idea, and suggested he call it Face Mash. He was intrigued with my suggestion and thought it was a good idea. Mark wanted to call it Face Smash, because he wanted to smash his ex in the face. I convinced him that Face Mash was a good idea and he agreed, but one week later he changed his mind and wanted to call it Face Smash. When I queried him about this he replied 'f.... off you c...- I'm calling it Face Smash'. Two weeks after this conversation he came up with the name Mashable and when I asked him why he chose the word Mashable instead of Face Mash he said 'f,...off you bastard, Face mash is not your idea'. So I re-posted the conversations we had two weeks earlier and he had to apologise and said he was going with Mashable. I took this as a sign that he wanted to throw me off the scent and take the site for himself. dave found the character of Mark Zuckerberg to be deceptive and dishonest and ended conversing with Mark Zuckerberg because of his dishonesty and lack of integrity



    After this dave started conversing with Dustin and Chris about an idea of mine called Facebook for an online service where students can post pictures and information on themselves and use it as a directory. They were very intrigued by my idea and wanted to know more.
    dave told them that in the beginning, it would be an online service just for Harvard students, and then spreading through the other campuses in America, joining them up together. The idea was to make it easy for people to connect with other university students so they could get an idea of what other campuses were like, and even eventually spreading through the general public, giving them an idea of what was offered at the different campuses.
    Dustin and Chris were very intrigued with my idea and said they wanted to be on board.
    dave talked extensively about my ideas of Facebook and went into great detail of how to get it set up and started. They queried about the finance of setting it up and I told them I was in contact with Tony Robbins, who was interested by the idea and we were having discussions regarding his financial backing of the project

    So we needed a platform dave made contact with paul ceglia and was in discussion about a platform for my idea the facebook
    but zuckerberg was dustin & chris roommate and zuckerberg made contact to paul ceglia to steal the idea facebook
    paul ceglia had no legal right to sell the the platform to mark zuckerberg but zuckerberg new what he was doing when he sign the contract
    (paul ceglia had no legal right to sell the the platform to mark zuckerberg } the contract was to David not zuckerberg

    ReplyDelete
  2. And what are you going to do zuckerberg when paul ceglia wins you can call the contract a fake a counterfeit but you cant can you zuckerberg Yes you did sign a contract zuckerberg In a email zuckerberg called paul ceglia a dum sucker in 2003 i david posted a copy of to friend and he set it fee and the roomer spread years a go that zuckerberg had sign the contract and yes the abc news room have a copy of the email

    So zuckerberg what are your options zuck i suppose you can tell the truth you see paul cegia had no legal right to sell you the platform
    david was in contact to paul about a platform suitable for facebook but you wonted to steal facebook by stealth and you will have to tell
    your mother and farther and sisters how you stole the idea facebook yes pay back is a bitch zuck and your co conspire in this was dustin
    yes dustin you told zuck to shut up about facebook you little prick

    dave then found another contact at Harvard, called Eduardo Saverin and invited him to join me in developing my idea, and also to find out what was going on between Dustin, Chris and Mark . eduardo offered finance to get facebook up and runing but zuckerberg spent the money on him self selfish prick zuck spent eduardo saverin money and spat in his face your best friend

    So ass one last effort to save facbook david contacted sean parker At the time, he was running an online site called Napstar, and he was also working on another site called Wired Hog parker at the time was on the move moving in to a new address : I started conversing with
    sean parker about the idea facebook ; so i contacted the guys and gave them the new address of sean parker; and it was at this time zuckerberg was starting to argue with eduardo saverin: you see zuck had what he needed to steal facebook :{sean parker

  3. Sean wanted 55% ownership of the project for his input so dave told him this was unacceptable and then he turned round and told Mark Zuckerberg had made him a better offer. dave told him that Mark did not own the idea of Facebook.
    He then got smart and asked me if dave knew what emails were and whether I could produce any evidence. dave took this as an attempt to see whether I could prove everything that took place and for him to use this as a weapon to see if he could gouge out as much interest in Facebook as he could, and he tried to play me off against Zuckerberg to get the maximum holdings of Facebook. I received an email from Parker saying that Zuckerberg had offered him 5% and was I interested in offering him more. At this point, I told him to **** off and that Facebook was not Zuckerberg's idea

    So dave found a site at Harvard called Harvard Connect (later, in 2004 changed to Harvard Connect To You) run by Cameron and Taylor Winklevoss, and dave explained everything about Facebook and the dealings with Zuckerberg, Dustin and Chris and how dave believed that Zuckerberg was in the process of stealing david idea, and I dave asked if the Winklevosses were interested in running Facebook on the Harvard site


    They expressed enthusiasm in the offer and liked the idea of running the site as they liked the concept of Facebook.They told me that they were going to change their site name and redesign it at that time (to Harvard Connect To You The person they called in to help them
    redesign their site was Mark Zuckerberg who then stole their platform : I told them that zuckerberg was a crook the winklevoss where to dumb and dupe by zuckerberg LooooooooL

    dave then went to Aaron Greenspan who was running house systems at Harvard and asked him (under an email non disclosure agreement) to run Facebook on his site which he agreed to do. aaron greenspan used the (info) to extort financal money out of facebook and zuckerberg paid the extortion money and dave call it extortion U see zuckerberg new aaron greenspan new zuck had stolen the idea facebook .I sent all the emails copy to aaron greenspan:{ aaron sold him self off like a hooker standing on a street corner }

    zuckerberg then went on to create a FAKE CONNECT 2U account filled with FAKE information from the stolen platform he stole from the winklevoss Dave got a email from this FAKE CONNECT 2U account . but dave new it was FAKE it was zuckerberg .
    zuckerber wonted more info and idea to steal so dave gave one idea and it was to put a silver layer around the F word on facebook to see if zuckerberg was going to steal this idea and yes he did

    david then log a complaint to the FBI about this stolen fake connect 2u account with fake information and about mark zuckerberg
    dave posted a copy of the emails to ben mezrick and to david kirkpatrick as for kirkpatrick your book is a joke and so are you :
    you are just a fence jumper david kirkpatrick and its chris that is the gay one you dick 'you sold yourself out you were given the full story of how zuckerberg stole facebook; and sold
