Apparently, he was a nerd. Ok not, that usual nerd because he didn’t like books much but he absolutely loved computers. Actually his father who was a dentist had a thing for computers and he transferred his knowledge about them to his son.

At the age of only 10 Mark and his father wrote a program that connected the computer at their home with the computer in the father’s office. They called it “ZuckNet.” It alerted doctor Z, as he is known, when a patient arrived. It was genius and it worked better than having the receptionist yelling , “Patient is here!”
