That Mark Zuckerberg has distanced himself from Aaron Sorkin's film "The Social Network" is old news but he has finally made some comments, recorded in the following video clip, recorded at Stanford University at the end of session in which he talked to a student audience.

   

 

He jokes that the aspect that the movie got right was his clothes:

"Every single fleece and shirt that I had in that movie is actually a fleece or a shirt that I own."

He goes on to complain that the movie got it "thematically wrong":

"They framed it as if I wanted to get girls or into some social institution"

explaining that although he has been dumped by girls several times the girl potrayed in the movie is entirely fictional and he has been with his current partner from before developing facebok.

 

 

 

His main objection is that the film maker:

can't wrap their head around the idea that someone might build something because they like building things.

This point drew warm applause from the audience and will undoubtedly strike a chord with anyone passionate about programming.
