Andrew McCallum, who co-founded Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg, has told how the idea of a social network came to fruition in a week.
McCallum claimed that both of the founders believed they would be kicked out of university for launching this idea. He admitted that Mark Zuckerberg came up with the code for Facebook in a week, while he was responsible for the design. Despite the fact that McCallum knew nothing about design, he used a pirated copy of Photoshop to come up with a plan.
Facebook co-founder said he was “disciplined” by Harvard, but both co-founders couldn’t imagine that 8 years on, a billion people would be using their social network. McCullum explained that at a startup, there is a million things you need to do – they were spending half of their time keeping the servers up. In addition, there was a continuing theme with the site: at one time, Mark Zuckerberg would alter a piece of code on the live version of Facebook.
The company was so dissatisfied with the price of servers from Dell, HP and IBM that its founders decided to launch their own server product. A few big names have taken up their designs and added their own modifications, like Apple and Goldman Sachs. According to McCallum, the FB design managed to achieve a 38% energy reduction.
Facebook co-founder refused to predict the future of the social network in years to come. He believes that the market dynamics change so fast that it is no use to look far into the future.

|Wrote the code in a week???!!!!!|
More like stole the code. He conceived of the idea and came up with the code in a week while several people worked on ConnectU coming up with the idea and writing the code over a couple of years. Then Zuckerberg comes around and says, "Hey what a great idea." And the rest is history.
