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 . Why Newark? "Well, Newark, is really just because I believe in these guys, right?" Zuckerberg told Oprah Winfrey on her TV show. "These guys" are Republican Gov. 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.

Two weeks ago, I introduced you to some Philadelphians I consider to be disruptive - innovative change agents who challenge the status quo in their respective fields. Since then, you've e-mailed me a lot of other names. Some - such as fiscal watchdog Brett Mandel and mural maven Jane Golden - are no-brainers. In a town long characterized by a go-along-to-get-along culture, they have the guts to stand up and stand out. I've been most intrigued, however, by the disrupters who have been operating below the media radar.

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.

Facebook Inc. chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg, in his first interview since the company's initial public offering, said he's taking steps to address the missteps that have weighed on shares and made it hard to make money from mobile advertising. "Now, we are a mobile company," Zuckerberg said in an onstage interview at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco on Tuesday. "Over the next three to five years, I think the biggest question that is on everyone's minds, that will determine our performance over that period, is really how well we do with mobile," Zuckerberg said.

Peter Thiel - a founder of online-payments giant PayPal , the first investor in Facebook , and deal partner of Tesla Motors boss Elon Musk - disrupts and provokes. 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 . Business isn't science, Thiel told the crowd.

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.

THE NEW Steve Jobs biopic is bland, barely competent and prone to exasperating lapses. As movies go, it's Windows 98. "Jobs," as it's titled, stars Ashton Kutcher as the Apple founder and godfather of the iPhone and iPod, noted visionary and innovator. Two things lacking in this movie: vision and innovation. This is especially apparent when you stack "Jobs" next to David Fincher's brilliant "Social Network," which, in profiling Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, has already given us our definitive digital-age Charles Foster Kane, a fellow of prodigious accomplishments and seething undercurrents - an antisocial social-network developer whose model of sharing is also an opt-in surveillance state.

By Jun-Youb "JY" Lee A recent gala headlined by John Legend celebrated the University of Pennsylvania's exceeding its $3.5 billion fund-raising goal by $800 million. But only blocks away, University City High School students quietly emptied their lockers following the Philadelphia School Reform Commission decision to close their school and 22 others to cover a $300 million budget deficit. It's ironic that a university can raise $4.3 billion during its five-year campaign, yet an entire city can't raise $300 million for its schoolchildren.

When it comes to personal digital satellite communications devices - what we used to call "phones" - I am not a technophobe, or even a 12:00. I own a cellphone, but use it for the strangest purpose: to talk to people. I don't take photos, I don't send text messages, I don't download from the Internet, I don't track my friends' global positions, I don't play music. I don't do any of the things most people under 30 think phones are supposed to do. In a world of smartphones, mine scored only 900 on the SATs.

Don't think Family Guy guru Seth MacFarlane will be asked to join the National Organization for Women anytime soon. Shock, if not exactly awe, gripped some viewers Sunday night when the first-time Oscar host launched into a surreal monologue about women. He opened with a musical tribute to actresses who opted to appear onscreen topless. It went downhill from there. Some zingers: Django is the story "of a man fighting to get back his woman, who's been subject to unthinkable violence, or as, Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, a date movie," said Seth, 39, referring to the two singers' troubled history.
