They say that students live exciting lives. This is only partly true. How can one’s life be exciting if your professors team up against you every single time with dozens of assignments? An essay on history, a research paper on economics, a book review on literature in a never-ending loop? It doesn’t have to be this way you know. Paper writing should come with an interest and involvement. Otherwise, it will hardly be a success. Surveys say that 9 out of 10 people never use any knowledge, gathered in a college or university when writing research paper. This brings up an obvious question: why bother? Sleepless nights spent on writing various boring assignments should be an echo of the past. Share our insight on things? Welcome to .
World makers, social network makers, ask one question first: How can I do it? Zuckerberg solved that one in about three weeks. The other question, the ethical question, he came to later: Why? Why Facebook? Why this format? Why do it like that? Why not do it another way? The striking thing about the real Zuckerberg, in video and in print, is the relative banality of his ideas concerning the “Why” of Facebook. He uses the word “connect” as believers use the word “Jesus,” as if it were sacred in and of itself: “So the idea is really that, um, the site helps everyone connect with people and share information with the people they want to stay connected with….” Connection is the goal. The quality of that connection, the quality of the information that passes through it, the quality of the relationship that connection permits—none of this is important. That a lot of social networking software explicitly encourages people to make weak, superficial connections with each other (as Malcolm Gladwell has recently argued 1 ), and that this might not be an entirely positive thing, seem to never have occurred to him.
