The book was frankly a “tech soap opera” as one industry friend put it, so when I saw that the Tomatometer for The Social Network was 97%, my jaw was on the floor.
After I saw the movie the first time, I knew why. After the second time, I appreciated it even more.
It has nothing to do with how it tracks reality — or not. It’s how well David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin crafted a modern morality play that can’t get much more relevant. Especially for those of us working on The Social Web 2.0.
