If Zuckerberg is looking back on 2014 thus far, he has a lot to be happy about. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the 29-year-old entrepreneur has had the best financial start of anyone on the planet in gaining $3.4 billion.

And yet, Zuckerberg and his wife – a physician named Priscilla Chan – have matched this immense good fortune with equal generosity.

The couple recently topped the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s list of most generous American philanthropists of 2013, after Zuckerberg and Chan donated $992.2 million to a Silicon Valley nonprofit.

Born Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, he is the son of Karen Kempner and Edward Zuckerberg, with three sisters. He was raised in a Jewish household and became a bar mitzvah at 13.


Louis C.K. Sells Unreleased Film Online

Last week comedian Louis C.K. released his previously unseen, 1998 film “Tomorrow Night” on his website to fans for a mere $5. Filmed in black and white, the indie project features cameos from the likes of a young Steve Carell and Wanda Sykes.

He is best known for his FX series entitled, “Louie,” for which he writes, directs, produces and stars, as a fictionalized version of himself. The show’s fourth season will premiere May of this year.

It seems the success of “Louie” has potentially paved the way for the development of another series by C.K. on FX. It has been announced that fellow comedian Zach Galifianakis will star as well as write for the yet-to-be-titled show.

Born Louis Székely Jr., he is the son of Mary Louise Davis and Luis Székely. C.K.’s paternal grandfather, Dr. Geza Székely Schweiger, was a Hungarian Jew who immigrated to Mexico.
