When Mark types email addresses in to tell people about facemash, he writes to several people @harvard.edu.

(FAS stands for Faculty of Arts and Sciences; the eponymous network covered all buildings within the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.) See more »
Did you know there are more people with genius IQs living in China than there are people of any kind living in the United States?
That can't possibly be true.
What would account for that?
Well first, an awful lot of people live in China. But, here's my question: how do you distinguish yourself in a population of people who all got 1600 on their SATs?

When I first saw the trailer, I couldn't believe it. Who could make such a beautiful trailer? It was oozing with sexuality, social anxieties, and jinxy little characters... I was enthralled. That commercial... with THAT music... it was just so heavenly-like. It moved me. It spoke to me. I just had to see this!
So I went. And I couldn't believe it: "I was watching a movie about Facebook."
Forty minutes into the movie, I was unable to keep my face from drooping; my muscles were laxed, as was my brain. I was turning into a zombie, but the cure was just over my shoulder-- it was right behind me.
THE DOOR! GET TO THE EXIT!! SAVE YOURSELF!
