Quick Hit - The Social Network

So I'm in the middle of watching "The Social Network" and what strikes me about the portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg in this film is how he seems like he thinks that the way he thinks is just as normal as it could be.  He truly doesn't seem to understand how others think.  I'm about half an hour in and I find it fascinating.

I do use Facebook a lot, and find it quite an achievement ... but I can also see the attitude that leads to tinkering with things that don't need to be tinkered with.

It makes me wonder how much of this portrayal by Jesse Eisenberg is true to life.

Love Facebook or hate it, it did take a genius to build it.  And there is a fine line between genius and insanity, that's for sure.
