    I say give Mark some credit. He may have used someone else's idea, but an idea is nothing if someone doesn't make something of it. I mean if I had an idea for a song, and someone made a song out of it, can I really be mad at them.. and seriously, let's learn some grammar rules before we comment on a site.

    And they say crime doesn't pay..... lol.

    He steals someone elses ideas/work.... and people act like it was his idea. Only in America.

    Zuckerberg? Really? What about Sergey Brin and Larry Page? Richard Holbrook? Assange?

    Zuckerberg is a thief. He stoled facebook. Let's elect Bernard Madolf instead.

    Time Magazine is pathetic. I have lost all respect.

    Look at the results. Zuckerberg is number 10!! You know something is wrong when the media doesn't support open journalism. Julian Assange won the vote fair and square. The Tea Party isn't even on the list. Shame on you, TIME.

    What has he done that has helped any thing besides taking credit for someone else work. Has he been nominated for a Nobel Prize–change the way the internet has been crafted. It seems like he's benefiting off of someone else's work. I mean I am proud on how facebook has become this great social networking site, but really, is he changing how energy is done in the world, or anything beside making cash off of Pay-per-click and advertisement.
