Since O'Brien's Poking Facebook / Mark Zuckerberg article in 02138, Facebook filed legal motion to have a number of associated documents removed.

It's not so funny how things go round and round...

In the early 1990s, there was an effort to get a Harvard facebook on the internet. At the time, many us of working in technology at Harvard had serious reservations about this plan due to PRIVACY CONCERNS.

I also find it strange that the current commercial Facebook claims a litigious history only back to Zuckerberg's time at Harvard - what about those involved in similar efforts over a decade earlier? Maybe they also deserve a piece of the Facebook pie.

Back in the 1990s the issues were simply about not wanting to have student phone numbers and actual addresses, that were at the time published in the print versions of the freshman facebooks, available to the public. What if a predator used it track down and harm or harass a student?

There were those us who worried about such mundane things which are now biting Mark Zuckerberg himself in the proverbial 02138.

FYI – Mark Zuckerberg is going to be interviewed on CBS 60 Minutes on January 13, 2008.

I am sure the ultimate question about where the Facebook idea came from will be posed to him. I am curious what his body language reveals about ConnectU and various lawsuits.

Based on the short video clip promo of the upcoming show, I think we are going to see a very revealing side of a young so called Web 2.0 social networking entrepreneur.

Tune in and let me know if you think he is telling the truth or hiding something.
