The BoingBoing Blog brings to attention an article from Business Insider which confirms a series of "embarrassing and damaging" IMs from Mark Zuckerberg. Among them, an exchange once leaked to Silicon Alley Insider in which Zuckerberg explains to a friend that his control of Facebook affords him access to any personal information he might care to see on any Harvard student.

But Mark Zuckerberg is no longer that jerk he is portrayed to be: not only did he acknowledged the messages to be his -- which were written when he was nineteen -- but stated that he absolutely regrets even making them. "I think I've grown and learned a lot," said Zuckerberg, who notes that his sophomoric former self shouldn't define who he is now.
