[학력사항] 옥톤고등학교 숀 파커(Sean Parker, 1979년 12월 3일 ~ )는 미 국의 기업인으로, 파일 공유 서비스 냅스터의 공 동 창업자이자 소셜 네트워킹 사이트 페이스북 의 초대 사장이다. 그는 또한 플락소(Plaxo), 커 시스(Causes), 에어타임(Airtime)의 공동 창업자 이기도 하다. 2012년 3월 기준으로 파커의 총 재 산은 21억 달러이다.
------------------------------------------- (참조 from 매경 박대의 기자, 2016.04.13) 음악 공유 사이트인 '냅스터' 설립자이자 '페이 스북' 초대 대표를 지낸 숀 파커(36)가 새로운 암 치료법 개발을 위해 나섰다. 파커는 2016년 4월 2억 5,000만달러(약 2,859억원)를 기부해 '파커 암 면역협회'를 설립했다고 뉴욕타임스, 워싱턴포스트 등이 보도했다.
파커는 스탠퍼드대, 펜실베이니아대 등 미국 내 6개 의과대학의 40개 연구소와 함께 협회를 운영 할 계획이라고 밝혔다. 기부금은 차세대 암 치료법으로 불리는 '암 면역 요법'을 개발하는 데 사용될 예정이다. 암 면역요법은 신체의 면역 작용을 이용한 암 치 료법으로 면역력을 높여 항체를 체내에서 스스 로 만들어내 돌연변이 암세포와 싸울 수 있도록 하는 치료법이다. 기존 화학요법, 외과요법, 방 사선요법에 이은 '제4 치료법'으로 주목받고 있다. 파커는 자신이 천식과 식품 알레르기 보유자라 고 밝히며 "더 빠르고 저렴한 치료법을 개발하 기 위해 의생명과학 연구에 자금을 지원하기로 했다"고 말했다.
------------------------------- 파커는 19세에 동업으로 냅스터를 만들어 낸다. 2000년대 우리 소리바다와 같은 프로그램이라고 생각하면 된다. 라떼는 말이야 가수들이 앨범을 CD로 냈었는데, 인터넷이 보급되면서 소리바다라는 mp3 공유프로그램이 나와 공짜로 마음 껏 음악을 즐길 수 있었다. 이러저러한 진통 끝에 지금과 같은 유료화가 정착되었는데, 그와 같은 이유로 냅스터도 망하고 숀 파커 역시 큰 돈은 만져보지 못하게 된다. 될놈될이라고 했던가, 그런 후에 페이스북을 만들고 있는 마크 주커버그를 만나 페이스북의 창립 대표가 된다. 페이스북이 나스닥에 상장되면서 숀 파커는 3조원 가량을 벌어들이며 진정한 영 앤 리치가 된다. 하지만 영화에도 언급되었다시피 코카인 소지 문제가 터지면서, 페이스북을 떠난다.
아론 소킨이 각본을 쓴 영화 소셜 네트워크에 페이스북의 창업 과정이 자세히 묘사가 된다. 근데 소킨의 영화가 대부분 그렇듯 사실을 영화화하는 과정에서 많은 각색이 일어난다. 숀 파커는 본인의 묘사를 굉장히 불쾌해 하는 인터뷰를 하였다. 특히 왈도를 회사에서 쫓아내는 부분은 정말 너무 심한 픽션이라며 분통을 터트렸다. 정당한 합의를 통해 결별했으며, 계속해서 연락을 주고 받을 정도로 절친한 친구사이라고 한다. [Young & Rich의 신나는 라이프] 숀 파커는 2018 기준으로 3조원 가량의 재산을 소유하고 있는데, 미니멀라이프를 추구하는듯한 마크 주커버그와는 다르게 파티광에 명품도 좋아하고 차도 수집하는 일반적인 갑부의 삶을 살고 있다. 특히나 100억을 들인 반지의 제왕 컨셉의 결혼식은 큰 화제가 되었는데, 엠마 왓슨, 스팅을 비롯한 하객들의 의상까지 반지의 제왕 디자이너를 고용해 맞춰주었다고 한다. [자선 사업] 파티광의 이미지와는 다르게 파커 재단을 설립해서 자선사업을 하고 있는 중이다. 특히나 2016년에는 암박멸을 목표로 연구소를 설립하기도 했다. 화끈한 영 앤 리치에서 인성과 비젼까지, 모든것을 다 가진 남자라 할 수 있겠다. 빌 게이츠도 그렇고 막대한 재산과 이미 개발되어버린 두뇌가 있으면 철학을 가지고 본인 사업을 하든지, 자선사업으로 넘어가든지의 테크를 타는 모양이다. 마크 주커버그 VS 빌 게이츠 VS 숀 파커 라고 묻는다면, 숀 파커가 가장 부럽다고 하겠다 놀만큼 놀고 인류를 위해 여생을 바치는 삶~~~ [출처] [영화_소셜네트워크] 진성 영 앤 리치, 숀 파커를 아라보자 2019. 10. 17.

Sean Parker (born December 3, 1979) is an American entrepreneur and philanthropist who cofounded the file-sharing computer service Napster and served as the first president of the social networking website Facebook. He also cofounded Plaxo, Causes, Airtime, and Brigade, an online platform for civic engagement. He is the founder and chairman of the Parker Foundation, which focuses on life sciences, global public health, and civic engagement. As of November 2015, Parker's net worth was estimated to be US$2.5 billion
[Early life] Parker was born in Herndon, Virginia, to Diane Parker, a TV advertising broker, and Bruce Parker, a U.S. government oceanographer. When Parker was seven, his father taught him how to program on an Atari 800. Parker’s father, who put his family over his entrepreneurial dreams, told Parker "if you are going to take risks, take them early before you have a family." As a teenager, Parker’s hobbies were hacking and programming. One night, while hacking into the network of a Fortune 500 company, Parker was unable to log out after his father unplugged and confiscated his computer keyboard. Because his IP address was exposed, F.B.I. agents tracked down the 16- year-old. Since Parker was under 18, he was sentenced to community service. [Education] Parker attended Oakton High School in Fairfax County, Virginia for two years before transferring to Chantilly High School in 1996 for his junior and senior years. While there, Parker wrote a letter to the school administration and persuaded them to count the time he spent coding in the computer lab as a foreign language class. As a result, towards the end of Parker’s senior year at Chantilly, he was mostly writing code and starting companies. He graduated in 1998. While still in high school, he interned for Mark Pincus (the CEO of Zynga) at Pincus's Washington D.C. startup FreeLoader. He won the Virginia state computer science fair for developing a Web crawler, and was recruited by the C.I.A. By his senior year of high school, Parker was earning more than $80,000 a year through various projects, enough to convince his parents to allow him to skip college and pursue a career as an entrepreneur. As a child, Parker was an avid reader, which was the beginning of his lifelong autodidacticism. Several media profiles refer to Parker as a genius. He considers his time at Napster to be his college education, calling it "Napster University," since he became well-versed in intellectual property law, corporate finance, and entrepreneurship. [Ventures] [Napster] When Parker was 15, he met 14-year-old Shawn Fanning over the Internet, where the two bonded over topics like theoretical physics and hacking. A few years later Fanning and Parker cofounded Napster, a free file- sharing service for music. Parker raised the initial $50,000, and they launched Napster in June 1999. Within a year, the service had tens of millions of users. Napster was opposed by recording labels, the Recording Industry Association of America, and the heavy metal band Metallica, among others. Lawsuits by various industry associations eventually shut down the service. Napster has been called the fastest growing business of all time, is credited with revolutionizing the music industry, and is considered by some to be a precursor to iTunes. [Plaxo] In November 2002, Parker subsequently launched Plaxo, an online address book and social networking service that integrated with Microsoft Outlook. Plaxo was an early social networking tool, which would later influence the growth of companies like LinkedIn, Zynga and Facebook. Plaxo was one of the first products to build virality into its launch, and that earned it 20 million users. Two years after founding Plaxo, Parker was ousted by the company’s financiers, Sequoia Capital and Ram Shriram, in an acrimonious exit that reportedly involved the investors hiring private investigators to follow him. [Facebook] In 2004 Parker saw a site called "The Facebook" on the computer of his roommate’s girlfriend, who was a student at Stanford. Parker had experience in the social networking industry as an early advisor to Friendster and its founder, Jonathan Abrams, for which he was given a small amount of stock in 2003. Parker met with Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin, and a few months later joined the five-month-old company as its president. According to Peter Thiel, Facebook’s first investor, Sean Parker was the first to see potential in the company to be "really big," and that "if Mark ever had any second thoughts, Sean was the one who cut that off." As president, Parker brought on Thiel as Facebook’s first investor. In the initial round of funding, he negotiated for Zuckerberg to retain three of Facebook’s five board seats, which gave Zuckerberg control of the company and allowed Facebook the freedom to remain a private company. Additionally, Parker is said to have championed Facebook’s clean user interface and developed its photo-sharing function. Zuckerberg notes that "Sean was pivotal in helping Facebook transform from a college project into a real company." During a party in 2005 police entered and searched a vacation home Parker was renting and found cocaine. Parker was arrested on suspicion of possession but was not charged. This event was subsequently used by Facebook investors to pressure Parker into resigning as company president. Even after stepping down, Parker continued to remain involved with Facebook’s growth and met regularly with Zuckerberg. The event was later dramatized in the Hollywood movie The Social Network. [Spotify] While working at Founders Fund, Parker had been looking to invest in a company that could further Napster’s music sharing mission legally. In 2009 a friend showed him Spotify, a Swedish streaming music service, and Parker sent an email to Spotify’s founder Daniel Ek. The pair traded emails, and in 2010 Parker invested US$15 million in Spotify. Parker, who currently serves on Spotify’s board, negotiated with Warner and Universal on Spotify's behalf, and in July 2011, Spotify announced its U.S. launch. At Facebook’s f8 conference that year, Parker announced a partnership between Facebook and Spotify, which allowed users to share their Spotify playlists on their Facebook profiles. [Airtime] In 2011 Parker reunited with Napster cofounder Shawn Fanning to found Airtime.com. Some of the investors are Ron Conway, Michael Arrington, and Ashton Kutcher. Parker will serve as executive chairman and Fanning as CEO. [WillCall] In August 2013, Parker invested in mobile commerce company WillCall alongside European angel investor Oliver Jung—during that round, a total of US$2.1 million was raised. The company, co-founded by Donnie Dinch, aims to develop partnerships with live music venues to enable customers to organize and pay for their concerts with only the use of their mobile handset. [Brigade Media] In April 2014, Parker announced his backing of a new initiative called Brigade, an online platform for civic engagement to "combat a lack of political engagement and interest in all levels of government across America." Parker serves as the Executive Chairman of Brigade. The initial round of funding was $9.3 million from Parker, with additional sums from other investors. In 2014, Brigade acquired Causes, an online platform for social impact and political activism. Causes had in 2013 acquired Votizen, a political advocacy startup. Parker and The Founders Fund were a part of Votizen's $1.5 million funding round in 2010, and Parker served on the board of directors. He has stated, "Politics for me is the most obvious area [to be disrupted by the Web]." (from naver.com wikipedia.org)
