An intimate portrait of the world’s most famous CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
But the moment belonged first and foremost to Zuckerberg, who for years has had his own identity problem: “boy CEO.” Young, arrogant, and awkward—no one believed that Zuckerberg could survive the adult swim of real business, and thanks to his depiction in The Social Network, some folks will forever see him as the fatally flawed psychopathic robot nerd looking to steal your code, your personal data, your girlfriend. “I don’t think about it … much,” he once told me when I asked him how he handles all the noise, measuring his words as he always does. “I understand why people need to have these dialogues, to ask these questions. We have so much to do here, we don’t think about it if we don’t have to.”
I realise, as this will eventually turn up advertised on Facebook, that it’s very meta of me to post such an article, but it’s a genuinely interesting and insightful look into how one of the defining young men of our age has evolved with the Pandora’s Box that he opened.
