Professor and President Emeritus of Harvard, Larry Summers, when asked about the scene in The Social Network dramatizing his conversation with the Winklevoss twins:
One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they're looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an asshole.That quote's been going around, so now the Winklevoss twins have issued a statement in reply, quoted at FT Alphaville:( Collapse ) Seems to me like he succeeded.
This was the latter case. Rarely, have I encountered such swagger, and I tried to respond in kind.
