The Social Network

Standard

This post is a bit different to posts about Mathematics. However this is a bit of a pet peeve of mine lately.
The film ‘the social network’ is a fast paced and at times good journey through one of the most successful business stories of the last ten years. Facebook, the website that has taken over a huge amount of my life. Most of my friends say similar things.
Now one of my first objections is the treatment of Sean Parker as a hedonist schemer. He seems a lot more complicated than the Justin Timberlake caricature that is portrayed on the screen.
Vanity Fair profile on Sean Parker discusses his quirks and libertine side.
A business artist. Its probably good to not underestimate Sean Parker.
