Submission + - Muck Zuckerberg, budding philanthropist? (theage.com.au)

brendan.hill writes: Mark Zuckerberg, the 26-year-old wunderkind behind Facebook is making a move to become a player in philanthropy just before the opening of a film that portrays him as less than charitable.

The recipient of his $US100 million ($A104.64 million) donation — thought to be the biggest of his young life — is the Newark public schools, a long-struggling district that could use the money to become a laboratory for reforms.

The donation is being announced this week on Oprah Winfrey's TV show in an arrangement that brings together the young internet tycoon, Newark's celebrated Democratic mayor and a governor who has quickly become a star of the Republican party.
