Does Mark Zuckerberg’s Dad Like Facebook?

Posted by:  /  Tags: ,

Mark Zuckerber’s dad should be proud of himself for buying Mark Atarti 80, his first programming tool.

I hope Mark did not use this computer to code Facebook though. Take a look at the Edward Zuckerberg’s office below.

Wondering if the office equipment directly connected to the Facebook network 🙂

Edward Zuckerberg about Mark’s Computer Exposure

Posted by:

Dr. Edward Zuckerberg, a dentist said in the a radio interview that an early exposure to computers inspired his son’s interest in technology, and he encouraged parents to support their children’s strengths and passions with a balance of “work and play.”

“My kids all grew up around the office and were all exposed to computers,” said Dr. Edward Zuckerberg, a dentist. “There are advantages to being exposed to computers early on. That certainly enriched Mark’s interest in technology.”

Mr. Zuckerberg said he computerized his offices in 1985. His son Mark Zuckerberg, cofounder and CEO of Facebook, was born in 1984 and was raised in the house where his father’s dental offices are located in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., in suburban Westchester.

The dentist said his own computer science background was “limited” — he majored in biology in college — but he said he’s “always been technologically oriented in the office” and “always had the latest high-tech toys,” including an early Atari 800.

“It came with a disk for programming,” he said. “I thought Mark might be interested and I imparted that knowledge to him. From there it took off.”

He said Mark got a book on programming, but “ultimately his ability to program was self-taught.

Dr. Zuckerberg is a 1978 graduate of New York University College of Dentistry. He completed a general practice residency at the Brooklyn V.A. Hospital in 1979 and received advanced training in Oral Surgery, Periodontics, Endodontics (Root Canal) and Prosthetics (Crown, Bridges and Dentures). In 1984, Dr. Zuckerberg received a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (F.A.G.D.) recognizing his superior achievements in post-graduate continuing education.

Censorship in China

Posted by:

We know that the Government of People’s Republic of China worries about their people and as a result they censorship all their after activities. China is already blocking Plurk,  Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Blogspot, Hotmail, Wikipedia and Twitter.

According to Chinese government, in 2010 there were 60,000 websites shot down due to the pornographic and obscene content. I really can not believe there were so many pornographic website in China. In a statement on December 30,2010 Wang Chen, a head of the State Council Information Office,  announced that there would be no stopping its campaign against material it deemed obscene.

On the positive site our blog is still open for people in China to read 🙂
