Things to read after watching The Social Network

2010-11-01 11:22:26


I managed to watch the movie "The Social Network" about how Facebook was founded back then when it was called TheFaceBook. How the site came about really touches me, because of my past experience my self developing social network sites such as Kawanster, it brings back memories to me, and i wished that back then, i was in the Silicon Valley area at and would have or might have made some difference in the community.

Oh well ... after watching the movie i would assure you would have the urge to Wiki some of the people and incident that you've seen in the movie. To makes things simpler, ive gathered some information and links for you to read to know the true reports of the movie "The Social Network. Check the links out.
