The whole scene is a bit too 1999 for a dot-com veteran. But Zuckerberg (who was, of course, just hitting puberty back then) appears blissfully unaware of the clichés around him.

What“s so cool about Facebook? With six million members, it has become the website for in-the-know college and, more recently, high school students. Zuckerberg and some friends started the site in 2004 at Harvard, which previously didn“t have a face book… Facebook now has users at 2,027 college campuses as well as some 22,000 high schools. Two-thirds of its users come back to the site every day, trolling through profiles of classmates and their friends. Facebook engineers recently added the ability to upload additional pictures; within weeks 15 million photos appeared.
