Mark Zuckerberg to give away half his money; Steve Martin finds his funny bone
Morning news to know:
Mark Zuckerberg joins Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffet and Bill Gates in the "Giving Pledge," a commitment to give the majority of his wealth to philanthropic causes and charitable organizations either during his lifetime or after his death. Zuckerberg's contribution will be a big one. His estimated net worth falls right around the $6 billion mark.
This is not the first time Zuckerberg has ventured into charitable giving, as he donated $100 million in Facebook stock to the Newark school system this September.
After a robust day of hacking by Internet groups defending and fighting WikiLeaks, the Post's Joby Warrick and Rob Pegoraro take a look at how the whistleblower site has managed to stay present online and on the attack.
Steve Martin chuckles:
After an interview gone bad at the 92nd Street Y in New York -- so much so that tickets were refunded to disgruntled guests -- Steve Martin regained his comedic gravitas on Stephen Colbert last night. Swilling a whiskey, the comedian, author and banjo player remakes Colbert's portrait with the help of Shepard Fairey and Frank Stella.
