Facebook Movie Preview

It's nice to see Harvard finally getting some recognition in the mainstream media, with the upcoming Facebook/Zuckerburg movie the Social Network (based on Ben Mezrich's book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook: A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal -- Mezrich is also a Harvard grad... graduated the same year I did!) -- here is (one of many) pages with the latest movie preview with some analysis, and here is a Youtube link.  Somewhere in there I saw the words Maxwell-Dworkin (the Harvard CS building).  And the scene where he is in front of the Ad Board (the Harvard body responsible for disciplining students) looks amusing -- I want to see how close it matches reality in full.

You're worried about Harvard getting mainstream media recognition? I'd be more worried that any attention paid to universities misses completely our intellectual mission.
