The Prophet of Publicness: Mark Zuckerberg

7. “Grok,” geekspeak coined by Robert Heinlein in Stranger in a Strange Land, is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as “to understand intuitively or by empathy,”
8. “Speech by Rupert Murdoch to the American Society of Newspaper Editors,” April 13, 2005 (
Disclosure: I advised Murdoch’s writer on the speech and earlier worked for TV Guide, then a division of their company, News Corporation. My last book was published by News Corporation’s HarperCollins.
9. Note: If I don’t become your Facebook friend, please don’t be insulted. I tend to use the service to organize and follow people I actually know. It also happens that my account has been broken for more than a year and I have been telling people that I have too many friends (5,000) when in reality I have far fewer. Frankly, I’ve found that to be convenient, sparing me from that awkward moment of rejecting someone who would be my friend, an act that feels rather like shoving a puppy. To handle just this situation, Facebook set up so?called fan pages, which eliminate the need to rule on friendships. Nonetheless, I find the idea of fan pages rather narcissistic; it’s bad enough that we can all have fifteen minutes of fame, but to assume that we all have fans strikes me as just too Hollywood. So there is, instead, a fan page for this book at
10. Note: Zuckerberg’s contention that we choose what to post on Facebook about ourselves is generally true. Except that your friends can talk about you and post pictures of you—though, at least on Facebook, you have control over whether you’re named in the pictures.
11. Note: Moore’s law, formulated by Intel cofounder Gordon Moore, dictates that the number of transistors that can be placed on a computer chip doubles about every two years. That is the engine that has driven the exponential rate of technological change in society. See’s_law

47. Note: For example: “The constitutional state predicated on civil rights pretended, on the basis of an effective public sphere, to be an organization of public power ensuring the latter’s subordination to the needs of a private sphere itself taken to be neutralized as regards power and domination.” Habermas, The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere, p. 84
48. Note: Though my German is poor, I will dare to question the translation of his title, as I believe the words in it carry much baggage in English. “Bürgerliche Gesellschaft” was translated as “bourgeois society” but perhaps that carries too much class distinction for American ears. Even though Habermas ends up describing just one class—that of the coffeehouses—I wonder whether “civic society” would be better. I had also wondered whether Öffentlichkeit could mean publicness, a state of being public, instead of the public sphere. But my friend Wolfgang Blau, the editor-in-chief of Zeit Online, explained to me that in German, Öffentlichkeit describes a space or a sphere, an abstract location or function in society rather than a mind-set or attitude.
