In 2004 Mark Zuckerberg was probably not expecting to be worth billions. I was an early 2005 user of TheFacebook.com and found it a fun, fast paced, very well designed web experience. Never though did I think in 2005 that it would be worth billions. With the Initial Public Offering slated to begin shortly I thought it might be fun to share the registration information Mark used to purchase thefacebook.com with back in 2004.
