Berkeley landscape architect Peter Walker has designed bigger projects than the 9/11 memorial in New York , but probably none has carried more weight. The opening of the eight-acre plaza Sunday marks 10 years since the terrorist attacks, and almost as many years since Walker joined with architect Michael Arad to finalize a monument for ground zero. The design -- down to plaza lights like the model Walker is holding -- demanded as much attention to emotion as to aesthetics and engineering.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Gov. George E. Pataki signed off on the more modest proposal after asking developer Frank Sciame to reduce the cost to $500 million.

The 10 million members of Facebook.com -- the social networking website that's a fixture on college campuses -- aren't using it just to check out potential dates or keep track of old high school buddies.
