Un punto sobre los “ideales” de Mark Zuckerberg

En un muy buen post, Nicholas Carr copia el comienzo de la carta que escribió Mark Zuckerberg para los futuros accionistas de Facebook:

Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission — to make the world more open and connected.

Y después lo contrapone con una conversación que tuvo con un compañero de la universidad cuando todavía no existía Facebook:

Zuckerberg: So you know how I’m making that dating site

Zuckerberg: I wonder how similar that is to the Facebook thing

Zuckerberg: Because they’re probably going to be released around the same time

Zuckerberg: Unless I fuck the dating site people over and quit on them right before I told them I’d have it done.

D’Angelo: haha …

Zuckerberg: Like I don’t think people would sign up for the facebook thing if they knew it was for dating

Zuckerberg: and I think people are skeptical about joining dating things too.

Zuckerberg: But the guy doing the dating thing is going to promote it pretty well.

Zuckerberg: I wonder what the ideal solution is.

Zuckerberg: I think the Facebook thing by itself would draw many people, unless it were released at the same time as the dating thing.

Zuckerberg: In which case both things would cancel each other out and nothing would win …

Zuckerberg: I also hate the fact that I’m doing it for other people haha. Like I hate working under other people. I feel like the right thing to do is finish the facebook and wait until the last day before I’m supposed to have their thing ready and then be like “look yours isn’t as good as this so if you want to join mine you can…otherwise I can help you with yours later.” Or do you think that’s too dick?

D’Angelo: I think you should just ditch them

Zuckerberg: The thing is they have a programmer who could finish their thing and they have money to pour into advertising and stuff. Oh wait I have money too. My friend who wants to sponsor this is head of the investment society. Apparently insider trading isn’t illegal in Brazil so he’s rich lol.

D’Angelo: lol
