The Social Network and Science Fiction

Y and I finally saw The Social Network (2010) for the first time thanks to a recent free rental from Family Video. I thought it was a very fine movie about the troubles of creating a big company that monetizes identity and “privacy” (with big quotes).

I am interested in the way that the film corresponds with the cyberpunk theme of being wired-in and its relationship to real autism (regardless if the real Mark Zuckerberg has autism or not).

Also, I got a good laugh at the Winklevoss posthuman joke: “I’m 6-5, 220 pounds, and there are two of me.”

What do you think?
