Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg has one of the most impressive resumés in the tech world, including a stint as chief of staff in the U.S. Treasury Department, and working to make Google into the giant that it is today.

Stop us if you’ve heard this before: A classmate of Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg from Harvard University is claiming that some of his ideas were stolen and incorporated into Facebook.

If it wasn’t bad enough that Facebook Co-Founder Eduardo Saverin renounced his U.S. citizenship, fellow co-founder and current CEO Mark Zuckerberg was likely rooting for an athlete from Haiti during the men’s triple jump final at the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games Thursday, but Samyr Laine, his freshman roommate at Harvard University, finished 11th out of 12 competitors with a distance of 16.65 meters, well behind the gold medal winner, Christian Taylor of the U.S., and his 17.81 meters.
Facebook Co-Founder Dustin Moskovitz founded workplace collaboration company Asana in 2009, but the Silicon Valley startup is in the news again, having received a sizable payment from PayPal and others.
