Did you know that Facebook is blue because Mark Zuckerberg is red-green colour blind?
Neither did we – till we read Jose Antonio Vargas’s excellent profile of the company’s CEO and cofounder in this week’s New Yorker.
Asked at a public appearance, 'You don't like doing these kinds of events very much, do you?
His family used it to communicate. They called it ZuckNet.
He 'absolutely' regrets them. If you're going to go on to build a service that is influential and that a lot of people rely on, then you need to be mature, right?
That changed after he learned that 'The West Wing' was written by Aaron Sorkin, who also wrote the upcoming ficational movie about Facebook's cofounding, 'The Social Network.'
'Blue is the richest colour for me. I can see all of blue,' he tells Vargas.
Some of the names are hilarious: 'Knife at a Gunfight,' 'Subprime Mortgage,' and, our favourite, 'Beacon.'
