What is Facebook to you? A tool? Entertainment? The air you breathe? Or a complete waste of time? I began on Facebook three or four years ago and thought, shit, there goes my business. "I'm a loser. What am I doing here?" I then found it to be a useful tool. It never crossed my mind that the 21 year old kid I just interviewed (and offered a job) would someday leave my office in 08 to work at Facebook and later offer me a job- the front, log-in page of Facebook.
But, well, thats what happened.
The kid's name is Ben Barry ( www.designforfun.com
) and he's quite a stud when it comes to design and nerdy shit like html, social networking, icons, letterpress and go carting with mark zuckerberg in the basement at Facebook. Nerds. Nerds! Step aside old studs, young nerds rule (and can change) the world. Yes, Ben drew these icons (beautiful aren't they?) you see each day on Facebook. Who knew what they actually looked like in detail right?
