Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook is Really a Hacker Company

Interesting quotes from Zuckerberg in this interview:

"I didn’t go to class all semester. I was supposed to be studying. But instead, I was building Facebook. Before the exam, I was screwed. So I went to the course web site and downloaded all the images that we had to learn the significance of. I made a site that would randomly take you to the image, and then you could write a caption in a bubble. Then it would show you what other people did.

Later the professor told me that was the final where people had done the best ever.

It was my first social hack…."

"For the first two years, the only advice he (Peter Thiel) gave me was don’t mess it up....Now we’ve built this sort of hacker culture. Early on, we were clueless.....

...Google is a technology I admire. It’s become apparent the way we’re different. They have a really strong academic culture. They do a lot of research and a lot of Ph.D’s. What we pride ourselves on is having a lot of impact, having a strong hacker culture..."

"We have a technology company that’s really a hacker company."

...."I want to be a part of building some institutions to be a great hacker institution in the long-term...."
To summarize, "hackers" are computer criminals dedicated to circumvention of computer security. This primarily concerns unauthorized remote computer break-ins via a communication network. This includes script kiddies, people breaking into computers using programs written by others, with very little knowledge about the way they work.

300 million people are trusting their private information with this "hacker company" and "great hacker institution" with a "strong hacker culture." It's no wonder why this company demands that people use their real information upon signing up.

What do the hackers at Facebook intend to do with that information?

This all confirms that Facebook could care less about your security and privacy.  Any company that is concerned about these things would not put such an emphasis on "hacking" within its own culture.
