He may not give too many interviews or public statements, but one academic is looking to compile every public comment, interview and remark made by Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg since the social network’s inception back in 2004.

As the Chronicle of Higher Education reports, The Zuckerberg Files will serve as an online archive of blog posts, magazine interviews, TV appearances, letters, presentations, and public appearances.

Though there is a dedicated portal for the Zuckerberg Files, they’re actually hosted on the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s Digital Commons, and includes both transcripts and videos. For copyright reasons, however, you and I can only access the bibliography and metadata – access to the full compendium is limited to scholars carrying out research in a relevant area, such as information privacy or ethics around online sharing.
