The Mark Zuckerberg Manifesto Is a Blueprint for Destroying Journalism
A sprawling new manifesto by Zuckerberg, published to Facebook
on Thursday, should set off new alarm bells for journalists,
and heighten news organizations' sense of urgency about how
they--and their industry--can survive in a Facebook-dominated
Op-ed: Mark Zuckerberg's manifesto is a political trainwreck
acebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has just published a 5,700
word "letter" on his profile, where he asserts that Facebook
represents one of history's "great leaps." Though he covers a
number of topics, what's most interesting is how he positions
Facebook as a force for political change in the coming years.
His goals are lofty, sometimes even grandiose. That's not the
problem. The problem is a fundamental contradiction built
into the way he hopes to create what he calls a "global
community" by essentially gerrymandering the Internet.
"Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your
curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all
you can with it, and make it the life you want to live." - Mae Jemison
