Ackerley's singular memoir about his German shepherd combines the line of Saul Steinberg with the mordant wit of Vladimir Nabokov.

CHICAGO - Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced a $100 million donation to Newark public schools in a move that could enhance his reputation just before the opening of an unflattering movie about him, The Social Network .

Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker, a Democrat. The three appeared together Friday on Winfrey's show.

THIS YEAR'S odds-on favorite to win the Oscar is available this week on DVD - David Fincher's "The Social Network. " The fascinating bio of Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) and his disputed invention of Facebook was directed by Fincher from a crackling script by Aaron Sorkin. Part of its fascination is the way Fincher's sympathetic regard for Zuckerberg merges so smoothly with Sorkin's harsher judgment - of Zuckerberg, of social networking in general. In the middle is Eisenberg, sure to be nominated for his complex portrait of Zuckerberg.

OK, this Justin Bieber thing, it's out of hand. Wednesday night, he was to perform outside the Oslo Opera House, part of his All Around the World TV thing. The result: crowd-control issues that made Beatlemania look like a Quaker meeting, young ladies by the thousands, running amok, arms akimbo, hair awry. Mulling a state of emergency, police begged J-Bieb, huddled in a secluded location, to sing early and calm the feminine vehemence. He did tweet that "u must all listen to the police," which, we're sure, did a lot of good.

WHEN I READ the article about Mrs. Krewson it made me sick. These two uniformed officers failed to take action because they didn't have a police radio. I'm sure both of them had cellphones. They probably were in court getting paid time and a half. They should be identified and disciplined for neglect of duty and cowardice. They put Krewson in danger. As for Lt. Sanford saying it was wise for the officers not to confront the suspectm, what's wrong with him? Somebody should tell him what real cops do. I recently retired from the Police Department after 44 years spending my last 28 years in homicide.

- Mark Zuckerberg Mark Zuckerberg, 26, the founder of the world's biggest virtual community, Facebook - which connects more than 500 million members in 207 countries - is a reclusive, abrasive, rude, sarcastic, angry young man who'd rather write computer code than talk to another human being. That, at least, is the Mark Zuckerberg we meet in the season's most highly anticipated Oscar contender, David Fincher's The Social Network , a tense, fast-moving, revelatory look at the prehistory of Facebook, which in seven years went from a dorm-room prank to a multibillion-dollar corporation.

TRENTON - The hottest new trend in Silicon Valley isn't inventing a gadget, developing an app, or investing in an IPO. It's giving to the governor of New Jersey. Gov. Christie has collected $289,150 from those involved in California's technology industry, an Inquirer analysis of his campaign records shows. That's a remarkable figure for a Republican running for reelection in a state 3,000 miles away - especially coming from a constituency that typically favors Democrats.

If you hear baby Max Zuckerberg crying, she's got a good reason. Her parents followed up her birth announcement with one that they were giving away 99 percent of their wealth. And even after that, daddy Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan are still in the 1 percent. That's rich. The news came out in a Facebook post by daddy Mark that Priscilla gave birth last week to Max, and that Mark and Priscilla also plan to donate most of their wealth, $45 billion , to a new organization to tackle a broad range of the world's ills.

FACEBOOK is a little bit like Lord of the Flies , without the exotic island locale. It's a place where people can gang up on you in a virtual lynch mob if you stray from the communal orthodoxy, and they use the "like" button as rope. You have two choices: Be shamed into submission or slink away on a life raft. Mark Zuckerberg's lucrative social experiment started as a way for college students to meet, a/k/a hook-up. But when parents and grandparents staged an unexpected coup d'etat, filling the screen with pictures of meals they'd eaten at Olive Garden, the kids moved on and the adults (I use that term loosely)

The day Mandy Edwards learned she was pregnant, in summer 2013, she texted her husband, Keats Rickard, a photo of a sesame seed and jotted, "We can talk about it later. " Edwards, 36 at the time, figured it would be safe to broadcast the news more widely after her first trimester. And when that marker passed, with an all-clear on the genetic testing and confirmation that the baby was a boy, the couple began to prepare a Facebook blast. Two days later, Edwards posted this instead: "It's kind of hard for me to put my business out there, especially with something so personal and painful, but . . . I had a miscarriage last night.

He pays smart tech kids to drop out of blue-chip colleges like Stanford (where Thiel went) and MIT. And he praises monopoly as the righteous goal of every thinking businessperson. Germany-born Thiel, 47, gave the opening talk Monday at this week's Forbes Under 30 Summit , addressing 1,000 dark-clad young people at the Convention Center, only a few of whom raised hands when he asked if they'd read his book, Zero to One .

This is the year the social medium stopped being new and took its well-established place as an information source and cultural force - and farce. Not new anymore. Facebook, which turns 10, sort of, in February (when undergrad Mark Zuckerberg and pals launched Thefacebook.com at Harvard), is now a billion users strong. Its gewgaw, Instagram, the beautiful images-and-video site, passed 150 million in September. Meantime, Twitter is now big biz. At an estimated 462 million users in January, Twitter zapped past 500 million by June and now entertains an estimated 557 million registered users.
