A fascinating look at the inside of Harvard (a side that according to my source is very sensationalized and doesn't portray the real Harvard life of most undergrads) and how a CS major has changed the world. The concept and the way Facebook came together so virally is mind blowing. (Haven't see the film, but now I'm ready!) Coincidentally, I attended the CS50 Fair at Harvard on Friday and while there were reps from Facebook, Google and Apple in attendance, the real shining stars were the young kids behind the laptops--sure to be other Zuckerbergs and Gates in the crowd.
