at a party for his fraternity. “He was this nerdy
guy who was just a little bit out there,” Chan
told the New Yorker. “I remember he had these
beer glasses that said ‘pound include beer dot
H.’ It’s a tag for C++. It’s like college humor but
with a nerdy, computer-science appeal.”

20 different iOS applications. The priciest of the
bunch was WhatsApp, which Facebook
purchased for a whopping $19 billion in February.

deal of thinking outside of the office about “how
to connect the world and serve our community
better.”

million to the San Francisco General Hospital
Foundation. It said the gift, which is the largest
private donation received by the hospital since
opening in 1994, will allow SF General to add
two trauma rooms and three operating rooms

blind. In an interview, he said “blue is the richest
color for me—I can see all of blue.”

because it is “safe, comfortable and not
ostentatious.”

Beast, who has a Facebook page with 2 million
fans.

11. Though he is best known for wearing a gray
T-shirt and hoodie, Zuck once wore a tie every
day for an entire year. He outlined this reasoning
on his Facebook page: “My 2009 challenge was
to wear a tie for a whole year. After the start of
the recession in 2008, I wanted to signal to
everyone at Facebook that this was a serious
year for us. Great companies thrive by investing
more heavily while everyone else is cutting back
during a recession. But great companies also
make sure they’re financially strong and
sustainable. My tie was the symbol of how
serious and important a year this was, and I
wore it every day to show this.”
