Last week I got to see a private screening of the film "The Social Network." It is the story of Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg is described as a hacker, a dropout and the world's youngest billionaire. The movie will be released to the masses next month.

There is no doubt that Zuckerberg has programming skills, but his idea would not have gelled if he had not understood how a college campus works socially. Facebook was created for college students, and to join it members were required to have a ".edu" e-mail address.
