But the biggest thing that thematically they missed is the concept that you would have to want to do something – date someone or get into some final club – in order to be motivated to do something like this. It just like completely misses the actual motivation for what we’re doing, which is, we think it’s an awesome thing to do.”

Zuckerberg edged out the Tea Party, Julian Assange, Hamid Karzai, and the Chilean miners for the annual honor.
