As we speak, some court-appointed forensic computers experts are poring over Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg's old hard drives to detect a possible intellectual property theft. Three Harvard grads filed a lawsuit accusing Zuckerberg to actually have build Facebook on their idea : in 2002, the three guys had dreamed of a social network called ConnectU. They began the work and asked Zuckerberg to finish the code. Instead, they claimed, he stole the code, built Facebook and, one day, open it up to the general public (you, me -- well, not me. Yet). Nice script, uh ?
