Require and do not give up

When a friend of the future founder of Facebook got the Quantex 486DX computer on an Intel 486 processor, 10-year-old Mark got the same from his parents. Zuckerberg recalls: “In about a month I realized that changing the color of the desktop saver back and forth, of course, was entertaining, but quickly bored; and then I started reading books and trying to write programs.” In the following years, studying independently and attending various courses, Mark Zuckerberg achieved impressive achievements in his infatuation, became a professional programmer.

Work only for yourself

In high school, Mark Zuckerberg came up with the Synapse program. It was a smart mp3 player that made playlists on its own, learning what music at what time of the day and how often the user listens. The program, which guesses what kind of music the user wants to listen to, interested such IT giants as Microsoft and AOL. Despite this, the future creator of Facebook chose to refuse offers to sell Synapse and his employment in one of the companies, putting Synapse in free access.

“In a world where social structures are above all, a virtual, publicly accessible file is an information bomb. In general, if a person has brains, he simply does not have the moral right to work not for himself, giving most of his time and the results of his achievements to his employer “- said Mark Zuckerberg.

Study without universities

Despite the fanatical enthusiasm for programming, the future creator of Facebook was not limited to one area of ​​expertise. He was well versed in mathematics and science. He studied ancient languages, antiquity, and also engaged in fencing. Even at Harvard, Mark, although he chose several programming courses, studied psychology.

“After Facebook scored a million users, and we were still interested in doing this, we decided to continue this business. But I always tell everyone, if Facebook fails, I will return back to Harvard,” Zuckerberg notes.

A bit of adventurism

The future founder of Facebook spent a lot of money set aside by his parents to pay for his studies at Harvard, at the beginning of his business, on Facebook. However, for a project of this magnitude, this was not enough, and Zuckerberg decided to take indefinite academic leave at Harvard and move to Silicon Valley so that his idea could get support.

“So, at the end of my summer in Palo Alto (Silicon Valley), I sat with my friends, and we wondered if we should go back to the university or should we take the investor’s money and see what happens. We chose the second and in the future they made the same choice again at the beginning of each semester, ”recalls Mark.

After launching the social network, Mark admitted that he wrote the code for Facebook in just a week with the help of his fellow students, Eduardo Severin, Dustin Moskowitz, Andrew McCollum and Christopher Hughes. And in the subsequent time, Mark worked a lot, not sparing his energy on his project.
