Zuckerberg: Some Tech Is Worrying, but Not Facebook

Harvard dropout Mark Zuckerberg returned to the university Thursday to give graduates a commencement address, filled with calls for building a connected world "where every single person has a sense of goal".

The 33-year-old tech mogul co-founded Facebook in a Harvard dorm room in 2004, but dropped out of the university to run what became the world's largest social network. Today Mark received an honorary doctorate degree from the University and gave the commencement address. "MARK ZOINKERBURG AT IT AGAIN", one headline reads.


"You all accomplished something I didn't" by graduating, said Zuckerberg, who dropped out to build Facebook into one of the world's most valuable companies. Visiting The Crimsonnow returns the site back to its usual state, but the internet never forgets. "Objective is what creates true happiness", Zuckerberg said. Choi adds that he regrets any inconvenience this caused readers, but really, who's inconvenienced here other than the Crimson team themselves? The rapid rise in technology will "steal" tens of millions of jobs in the upcoming years, and these people, unless they manage to find a goal in their lives, will turn to isolationism and nationalism. They got this sense of objective from having a job, going to church, or participating in community activities.

Just minutes before Zuckerberg was slated to give the commencement address, people on Twitter said that they noticed some changes to The Harvard Crimson website. In his speech, Zuckerberg spoke of his experiments, failures, and success. He shared a photo of himself with dad Edward Zuckerberg and mom Karen Kempner on Facebook after receiving his honorary Doctor of Laws degree.


"There is something wrong with our system when I can leave here and make billions of dollars in ten years when millions of students can't afford to pay off their loans, let alone start a business."

Apart from automation, Zuckerberg talked about various topics like climate change, affordable health care and universal basic income. Talking about his own memory, Zuckerberg said that he was sitting on a couch and playing a video game when he got the letter. "The idea of a single eureka moment is a unsafe lie", he said. One day, when Zuckerberg asked what the student wanted for his birthday, the teen said he would like a book on social justice because he knew what his classmates were going through.
