B6 – Thoughts on “The Social Network”

I thought the movie was well made. It showed how ideas get started and the consequences of legal trouble. But Facebook really started by popularity and simplicity. And the backbone of these ideas our hours upon relentless hours of complicated and very well structured programming. By well structured, besides organization, I am referring to something we have previous talked about in class, Algorithms. For the site Facemash couldn’t even become created without a good algorithm Mark got from a friend. These algorithms help define where the user is directed to after inputting data. I believe, the more we advance into the future, the more complex these problems in technology become. This will be the drive of future jobs and business.
