News & Articles

Just Where Did Facebook Come From and Why Is It So Evil? by Naythan
Was Mark Zuckerberg capable of writing the Facebook code unassisted? No, he stole it. Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, Olympic rowers, identical twins and fellow Harvard students of Zuckerberg claimed that they, not Zuckerberg, had the original idea and basic code for Facebook. They were awarded a $200 Million settlement against Zuckerberg in 2008, back when that was a big sum for a 4yr old startup. https://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/12/technology/12facebook.html
The Winklevoss twins wrote a primitive social media app for use on their campus. Somehow Zuckerberg got his hands on it, and despite having only a basic coding ability, turned it into Facebook by having it inserted in a much larger framework. Why was he even allowed to proceed with it’s development after 2008? And where did this sophisticated framework that would become Facebook (once the twin’s written part of the code was inserted into it) come from if Zuck struggles with simple coding?
This is where fact and conspiracy collide. This comprehensive article explains much, with solid, documented facts in many cases, but quite a bit of extrapolation into the “possibilities”, attempting to “connect the dots”, is included and certainly muddies the waters. Some may even say it’s bordering on sci-fi and reading like a fictionalized-history or detective story. If the roots of social media interest you, both the facts and legends, you’ll find this a fascinating read. Then impress your kids at dinner tonight with some fun facts to drop in the conversation, if you can get them to put down their iPhones that is.
Fair Warning: If you are annoyed rather than entertained by conspiracy theories skip it.
