The Social Network (2010)

The Social Network is, I think, a very good movie. It greatly captures a spirit, a universe, that made possible the creation of Facebook: a totally asocial guy giving birth to the world of virtual socializing. Someone said to me once that you could be social or asocial only in the real world. Any virtual friendship is just virtual, it means fake. You could guess: I met that person exclusively on Facebook.

Of course the story in the movie is fictitious, it serves only to make a point. How is the creator of Facebook in real life? Only people who met him in reality know that. He's surely very smart, and very quick in his reasoning and in the flow of his speech (and the movie was great in rendering this). To say anything else would be preposterous: who are you to speak about a guy you never met?
