That person is the former Yahoo CEO Terry Semel. He told the New Yorker that he never meet such a person who is indifferent to money before. No one would refuse his generous offer of 1 billion. But Zuckerberg said, "This is not a problem of money. The website is my child and I would like to bring him up myself. " When Semel recalls this conversation, he still can not believe his ears.
