Zuck and Chan had their daughter in November, but Mark is a May baby. Edward and Karen Zuckerberg, a dentist and a psychiatrist respectively, raised four children: Randi, Donna, Arielle, and, of course, Mark, in Dobbs Ferry, New York. A precocious child, Mark created a messaging program called “Zucknet” using Atari BASIC at age 12. As a kid he also coded computer games for his friends.

While attending high school at the renowned Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, he built an early music streaming platform, which both AOL and Microsoft showed interest in. Still a teen, he rejected offers for an acquisition or a job.

He wasn’t just a computer nerd though. Zuck loved the classics — “The Odyssey” and the like — and he became captain of his high school fencing team.
