Zuckerberg’s constant refrain about making the world more open place makes me retch. Example:
A lot of times, I run a thought experiment, “If I were not at Facebook, what would I be doing to make the world more open?” Because I think when I got started six years ago, building a social network was the best thing to do. Now, today, I’m not sure that’s the best thing to do. Now we exist and there is a big opportunity to build atop the platform. There are all these awesome, new technologies that didn’t exist back then, like EC2 and S3. […]
So I don’t know, one thing that is personally a bit disheartening…. It bums me out that people immediately go to “You must be doing this to make money.” Because that’s just so different from the ethos of the company. It is so different from how we actually think about stuff that you feel so misunderstood.

I commented on twitter earlier this morning that Zuckerberg is a sociopath and FB’s server farm needs to be wiped by an electromagnetic pulse weapon. I really wouldn’t be surprised if he has friends at DARPA, if not fans.
