He is eight days younger than Zuckerberg. Moskovitz attended Harvard University as an economics major for two years before he moved with Mark Zuckerberg to Palo Alto. He went to work full-time on Facebook.
This week he testified before Congress, assuring lawmakers that his company will play nice with government regulators. His memorable moments include evacuating his bowels, vomiting, and then lunging into a glass wall in front of his workers.

As Facebook and Congress start to write new rules for cyberspace, all of us who believe in free expression and permissionless innovation have a stake in making sure that the future of the internet remains as open as possible.
