What This Student Learned After Losing An Internship At Facebook
Bellevue native Aran Khanna always loved to build things. When he went off to college at Harvard, Khanna thrust himself into computer science; his love of building became a love of coding. For Khanna, the holy grail of college internships was Facebook. He dreamed of a place where it was encouraged to code first and ask questions later.
When Khanna landed that prized Facebook internship, however, he soon discovered the company was less committed to "hacker culture" than he thought. In fact, Facebook was not so happy about Khanna's own vigilante attempts to spotlight a privacy issue in their messaging app. Gabriel Spitzer talks to Khanna about his revelations and why he doesn't regret upsetting his dream company.
