Coming out in October, The Social Network, a movie about the founding of Facebook is going to be a huge hit. I'm reading the book upon which it is based, "The Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Merzrich and enjoying it immensely.
It's not exactly a history book, rather a blend of fiction and fact, which is probably why it is so much fun to read. As Merzich confesses in the Introduction, "I do employ the technique of re-created dialogue."
Reportedly, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and the members of his inner circle already hate the movie even though they haven't seen it. According to Kara Swisher of All Things Digital, "Zuck" is dreading its release because of "inaccuracies" in the book it is based on.
Can't say I blame him, but what the hell, as the trailer says, "You don't get to 500 Million Friends without making a few Enemies."
Note to author Merzich: ALL BILLIONAIRES ARE ACCIDENTAL.
