Harris was also able to secure thousands of emails that are cited in throughout the book, which helps to fill in many gaps of knowledge between the collaboration between Valve and Facebook as well as how the open source ecosystem cultivation of Oculus was slowed shifted towards strategies of platform ownership pushed by the leadership of Facebook. Harris was able to craft a super dramatic human story of innovation and risk that starts with a dream of virtual reality and slowly evolves into a full-blown start-up team, and eventually a unicorn acquisition that catalyzes the next phase of an entire spatial computing revolution. Harris chose to obfuscate the precise sourcing of information in order to build trust for engaging with employees within a publicly traded company. But with all of that said, there are aspects of this story that would have been impossible to tell had Harris tried to preserve the complexity of every nuanced disagreement, especially when Facebook allegedly deliberately tried to spread misinformation through Harris. This eventually came to a head about a year after Luckey was fired when Facebook ultimately cut off access to Harris in the spring of Harris alleges that Luckey was compelled to sign a non-disclosure and non-disparagement agreement with Facebook as part of his departure.

Responding to growing user concerns about privacy and growing scrutiny from American and European regulators of privacy practices, Mark Zuckerberg , the founder and chief executive of Facebook. Never mind all the people who doubt whether a more connected world necessarily translates into a better, more trusting world. There are plenty of Facebook users who simply question its commitment to letting them easily control their own information. Some claim, for example, that because of Facebook, young people today have a harder time cheating on their boyfriends or girlfriends. They also say that more transparency should make for a more tolerant society in which people eventually accept that everybody sometimes does bad or embarrassing things. Kirkpatrick — who for many years was the senior editor for Internet and technology at Fortune magazine — was encouraged by Mr. Zuckerberg to write this book and was granted extensive access to him and his associates.
