Mark never used somebody elses inventions or depended on anyone elses inventions. He helped people make websites but never did he depend on anyone else. For the most part mark was very independent. If anything other people depended on his inventions. Why would he have to depend on anyone else when he could invent one of the most popular websites by himself?
