It all started in your typical college dorm room with a bunch of nerds who didn’t have much of a social life. Using their brains, over active imaginations, and the strong desire to be wanted by their peers, they came up with a concept that they just knew would work. The problem was that they had to get others to believe in their concept.
That could very well be the tale of all the other successful people in the Internet/technology industry today, but Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook is the latest nerd to have caught the whole world’s attention. If things go the way they have been going in the past years, the world might as well be called Zuckerbergville.
There is no ignoring the fact that his social network has spread to the four corners of the world, earning him gazillions of dollars in the process. The users of Facebook are just so many that the social network has had to create its own data centers and not rely on an external data center service. As if that were not enough, a movie has been made about the creation and the rise of Facebook. Mind you, even real nerds and geeks – not just the wannabes out there – have given the movie a thumbs up! It doesn’t stop there. In true capitalist fashion, Facebook is going to have its very own mobile phone in the market some time this year – or so the rumor mill goes.
That rumor has been flying around for a long time now, but recently, someone stumbled upon a patent for a mobile phone that seems to support the rumors. We don’t know if it is 100 percent accurate, but hey, if it ain’t world domination that Zuckerberg is aiming for, then I don’t know what it is. Do you?
