00:00:16Did you know there are more people with genius IQs living in China
00:00:19than there are people of any kind living in the United States?
00:00:21- That can't possibly be true. - It is.
00:00:23What would account for that?
00:00:24Well, first, an awful lot of people live in China, but here's my question.
00:00:27How do you distinguish yourself in a population of people
00:00:29who all got 1600 on their SATs?
00:00:31- I didn't know they take SATs in China. - They don't.
00:00:33I wasn't talking about China anymore, I was talking about me.
00:00:35You got a 1600?
00:00:37Yes. I could sing in an a Capella group, but I can't sing.
00:00:38Does that mean you actually got nothing wrong?
00:00:40I could row crew or invent a $25 PC.
00:00:42Or you could get into a final club.
00:00:44Or I get into a final club.
00:00:45You know, from a woman's perspective,
00:00:46sometimes not singing in an a Capella group is a good thing.
00:00:48This is serious.
00:00:50On the other hand, I do like guys who row crew.
00:00:51Well, I can't do that.
00:00:53I was kidding.
00:00:55And, yes, I got nothing wrong on the test.
00:00:56- Have you ever tried? - I'm trying right now.
00:00:58- To row crew? - To get into a final club.
00:01:00To row crew? No. Are you, like, whatever, delusional?
00:01:02Maybe it's just sometimes you say two things at once.
00:01:04I'm not sure which one I'm supposed to be aiming at.
00:01:06But you've seen guys who row crew, right?
00:01:09Okay, well, they're bigger than me. They're world-class athletes.
00:01:11And a second ago, you said you like guys who row crew
00:01:13so I assumed you had met one.
00:01:14I guess I just meant I like the idea of it. You know, the way a girl likes cowboys.
00:01:20Should we get something to eat?
00:01:21Would you like to talk about something else?
00:01:23No. It's just since the beginning of the conversation about finals club,
00:01:26I think I may have missed a birthday.
00:01:29There are really more people in China with genius IQs than the entire population...
00:01:32The Phoenix is the most diverse. The Fly Club... Roosevelt punched the Porc.
00:01:36Which one?
00:01:37The Porcellian, the Porc. It's the best of the best.
00:01:38- Which Roosevelt? - Theodore.
00:01:42Is it true that they send a bus around to pick up girls
00:01:44who want to party with the next Fed chairman?
00:01:45So you can see why it's so important to get in.
00:01:48Okay, well, which is the easiest to get into?
00:01:52- Why would you ask me that? - I was just asking.
00:01:55None of them. That's the point.
00:01:57My friend Eduardo made $300,000 betting oil futures one summer
00:02:00and Eduardo won't come close to getting in.
00:02:02The ability to make money doesn't impress anybody around here.
00:02:04Must be nice. He made $300,000 in a summer?
00:02:07- He likes meteorology. - You said it was oil futures.
00:02:09You can read the weather, you can predict the price of heating oil.
00:02:12I think you asked me that
00:02:13because you think the final club that's easiest to get into
00:02:15is the one where I'll have the best chance.
00:02:16I... What?
00:02:19You asked me which one was the easiest to get into
00:02:20because you think that that's the one where I'll have the best chance.
00:02:23The one that's the easiest to get into would be the one
00:02:25where anybody has the best chance.
00:02:27You didn't ask me which one was the best one,
00:02:28you asked me which one was the easiest one.
00:02:30I was honestly just asking, okay? I was just asking to ask.
00:02:33- Mark, I'm not speaking in code. - Erica.
00:02:36You're obsessed with finals clubs.
00:02:38You have finals clubs OCD and you need to see someone about it
00:02:41who will prescribe you some sort of medication.
00:02:43You don't care if the side effects may include blindness.
00:02:45Final clubs. Not "finals clubs."
00:02:49And there's a difference between being obsessed and being motivated.
00:02:52Yes. There is.
00:02:55Well, you do. That was cryptic, so you do speak in code.
00:02:56I didn't mean to be cryptic.
00:02:58I'm just saying I need to do something substantial
00:03:00in order to get the attention of the clubs.
00:03:02- Why? - Because they're exclusive.
00:03:04And fun, and they lead to a better life.
00:03:06Teddy Roosevelt didn't get elected president
00:03:08because he was a member of the Phoenix Club.
00:03:10He was a member of the Porcellian, and yes, he did.
00:03:12Well, why don't you just concentrate on being the best you you can be?
00:03:16Did you really just say that?
00:03:17I was kidding.
00:03:19Just because something's trite doesn't make it less true.
00:03:20I wanna try to be straightforward with you
00:03:21and tell you I think you might want to be a little more supportive.
00:03:24If I get in, I will be taking you to the events and the gatherings,
00:03:27and you'll be meeting a lot of people you wouldn't normally get to meet.
00:03:32You would do that for me?
00:03:34We're dating.
00:03:38Well, I wanna try and be straightforward with you
00:03:40and let you know that we're not anymore.
00:03:42- What do you mean? - We're not dating anymore. I'm sorry.
00:03:45- Is this a joke? - No, it's not.
00:03:47You're breaking up with me?
00:03:48You're gonna introduce me to people
00:03:49I wouldn't normally have the chance to meet?
00:03:51What the... What is that supposed to mean?
00:03:53- Wait, settle down. - What is it supposed to mean?
00:03:54Erica, the reason we're able to sit here and drink right now
00:03:56is 'cause you used to sleep with the door guy.
00:03:59"The door guy"? His name is Bobby. I have not slept with the door guy.
00:04:03The door guy is a friend of mine, and he's a perfectly good class of people.
00:04:07And what part of Long Island are you from, Wimbledon?
00:04:10- Wait. Wait, wait. - I'm going back to my dorm.
00:04:12- Is this real? - Yes.
00:04:14- Then wait, I apologize, okay? - I have to go study.
00:04:16- Erica? - Yes?
00:04:17- I'm sorry, I mean it. - I appreciate that, but I have to go study.
00:04:19Come on, you don't have to study. Let's just talk.
00:04:22- I can't. - Why?
00:04:23Because it is exhausting. Dating you is like dating a StairMaster.
00:04:26All I meant is that you're not likely to... Currently...
00:04:28I wasn't making a comment on your appearance.
00:04:30I was saying that you go to BU. I was stating a fact, that's all,
00:04:32and if it seemed rude, then I apologize.
00:04:33- I have to go study. - You don't have to study.
00:04:34Why do you keep saying I don't have to study?
00:04:36'Cause you go to BU.
00:04:40Do you want to get some food?
00:04:42I am sorry you are not sufficiently impressed with my education.
00:04:45And I'm sorry I don't have a rowboat, so we're even.
00:04:47- I think we should just be friends. - I don't want friends.
00:04:50I was just being polite.
00:04:51I have no intention of being friends with you.
00:04:52I'm under some pressure right now from my OS class
00:04:54and if we could just order some food, I think we should...
00:04:57Okay, you are probably going to be a very successful computer person.
00:05:02But you're gonna go through life thinking that girls don't like you
00:05:05because you're a nerd.
00:05:07And I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that that won't be true.
00:05:12It'll be because you're an asshole.
00:08:17Erica Albright's a bitch.
00:08:18Do you think that's because her family changed their name from Albrecht,
00:08:21or do you think it's because all BU girls are bitches?
00:08:29For the record, she may look like a 34C,
00:08:31but she's getting all kinds of help from our friends at Victoria's Secret.
00:08:33She's a 34B, as in barely anything there. False advertising.
00:08:42The truth is, she has a nice face.
00:08:43I need to do something to take my mind off her.
00:08:46Easy enough, except I need an idea.
00:08:55I'm a little intoxicated, I'm not gonna lie.
00:08:57So what if it's not even 10:00 p.m. And it's a Tuesday night?
00:09:00The Kirkland facebook is open on my desktop,
00:09:02and some of these people have pretty horrendous facebook pics.
00:09:05Billy Olson's sitting here and had the idea of putting some of the pictures
00:09:08next to pictures of farm animals and have people vote on who's hotter.
00:09:12Good call, Mr. Olson.
00:09:20Yeah, it's on. I'm not gonna do the farm animals,
00:09:23but I like the idea of comparing two people together.
00:09:25It gives the whole thing a very "Turing" feel
00:09:26since people's ratings of the pictures will be more implicit
00:09:28than, say, choosing a number to represent each person's hotness,
00:09:31like they do on hotornot. Com.
00:09:33The first thing we're going to need is a lot of pictures.
00:09:35Unfortunately, Harvard doesn't keep a public centralized facebook,
00:09:37so I'm going to have to get all the images
00:09:39from the individual houses that people are in.
00:09:42Let the hacking begin.
00:09:59First up is Kirkland.
00:10:00They keep everything open and allow indexes in their Apache configuration.
00:10:03So a little Wget magic is all that's necessary to download the entire Kirkland facebook.
00:10:08Kids' stuff.
00:10:27Next is Eliot.
00:10:28They're also open, but with no indexes on Apache.
00:10:30I can run an empty search
00:10:31and it returns all of the images in the database in a single page.
00:10:33And I can save the page and Mozilla will save all the images for me.
00:10:37Excellent. Moving right along.
00:10:39Excuse me! Everybody!
00:10:41You are at one of the oldest, one of the most exclusive clubs,
00:10:45not just at Harvard, but in the world.
00:10:48And I want to welcome you all
00:10:49to Phoenix Club's first party of the fall semester!
00:10:59Lowell has some security. They require a user name/password combo,
00:11:02and I'm gonna go ahead and say they don't have access to the main FAS user database,
00:11:05so they have no way of detecting an intrusion.
00:11:08Adams has no security, but limits the number of results to 20 a page.
00:11:12All I need to do is break out the same script I used on Lowell and we're set.
00:11:16Quincy has no online facebook. What a sham.
00:11:19Nothing I can do about that.
00:11:21Dunster is intense.
00:11:22Not only is there no public directory, but there's no directory at all.
00:11:25You have to do searches,
00:11:26and if your search returns more than 20 matches, nothing gets returned.
00:11:29And once you do get results, they don't link directly to the images.
00:11:31They link to a PHP that redirects or something. Weird.
00:11:34This may be difficult. I'll come back later.
00:11:35- Hey, Shark Week's on. - What?
00:11:38- Great white, beautiful fish. - Nice.
00:11:40Leverett is a little better. They still make you search,
00:11:42but you can do an empty search and get links to pages with every student's picture.
00:11:45It's slightly obnoxious that they only let you view one picture at a time,
00:11:48and there's no way I'm going to go to 500 pages to download pics one at a time.
00:11:51So it's definitely necessary to break out Emacs and modify that Perl script.
00:12:05Here you go.
00:12:13Hey, what's going on?
00:12:15Perfect timing. Eduardo's here and he's going to have the key ingredient.
00:12:18- Hey, Mark. - Wardo.
00:12:20You and Erica split up.
00:12:22How did you know that?
00:12:23It's on your blog.
00:12:26- Yeah. - Are you all right?
00:12:28- I need you. - I'm here for you.
00:12:30No, I need the algorithm you use to rank chess players.
00:12:32- Are you okay? - We're ranking girls.
00:12:37- You mean other students. - Yeah.
00:12:39You think this is such a good idea?
00:12:41- I need the algorithm. - Mark...
00:12:42I need the algorithm.
00:12:46Give each girl a base rating of 1400.
00:12:48At any given time Girl A has a rating R-a and Girl B has a rating R-b.
00:12:53When any two girls are matched up, there's an expectation of which will win
00:12:55based on their current rating, right?
00:12:57Yeah. And those expectations are expressed this way.
00:13:00Let's write it.
00:13:16One on the left.
00:13:19The right.
00:13:20Yeah, still the right.
00:13:22- It works. - Who should we send it to first?
00:13:23- Dwyer. - Neal.
00:13:25- Who are you gonna send it to? - Just a couple of people.
00:13:28The question is,
00:13:29who are they gonna send it to?
00:14:01Hey, guys, check this out.
00:14:04Someone go to the left. Dude, do left.
00:14:06Look at these girls. Right or left?
00:14:09- Left is hot. - Left? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
00:14:12Right or left?
00:14:14That's my roommate.
00:14:16- Oh, my God. - The girl on the left.
00:14:19This is pathetic.
00:14:24- Left. - Left?
00:14:26Oh, shit.
00:14:31He blogged about you.
00:14:33You don't wanna read it.
00:14:43Is this yours?
00:14:45I stole it from a tranny.
00:14:46Get the hell out of here!
00:14:49- Left. - One on the right.
00:14:59Man, that's an awful lot of traffic.
00:15:03You think maybe we shouldn't shut it down before we get into trouble?
00:15:18Wait, wait, wait, wait. What?
00:15:21At 4:00 in the morning?
00:15:22Well, there's a very unusual amount of traffic to the switch at Kirkland.
00:15:26You're saying it's unusual for 4:00 in the morning?
00:15:28No, this'd be unusual for halftime at the Super Bowl.
00:15:32All right.
00:15:36I gotta go in.
00:15:38What's going on?
00:15:40Harvard's network is about to crash.
00:15:49You don't think...
00:15:52I do.
00:15:54Go see if it's everybody's.
00:16:02I can't connect.
00:16:04The network's down.
00:16:07Unless it's a coincidence, I think this is us.
00:16:09It's not a coincidence.
00:16:11Holy shit.
00:16:16So you were called in front of the Ad Board.
00:16:18That's not what happened.
00:16:20You weren't called in front of the Administrative Board?
00:16:22No, back. I mean back at the bar with Erica Albright. She said all that?
00:16:25- Mark... - That I said that stuff to her?
00:16:27I was reading from the transcript of her deposition.
00:16:29Yeah, why would you even need to depose her?
00:16:31That's really for us to decide.
00:16:32You think if I know she can make me look like a jerk, I'll be more likely to settle.
00:16:36Why don't we stretch our legs for a minute?
00:16:37Can we do that? It's been almost three hours.
00:16:39And frankly, you did spend an awful lot of time embarrassing Mr. Zuckerberg
00:16:43with the girl's testimony from the bar.
00:16:45I'm not embarrassed, she just made a lot of that up.
00:16:47She was under oath.
00:16:48Then I guess that would be the first time somebody's lied under oath.
00:17:01The site got 2,200 hits within two hours?
00:17:08Twenty-two thousand.
00:17:30These guys are just freaking fast.
00:17:38Is there any way to make this a fair fight?
00:17:41Jump out and swim.
00:17:43I think we'd have to jump out and drown.
00:17:45Well, you could row forward and I could row backward.
00:17:48We're genetically identical. Science says we'd stay in one place.
00:17:52Just row the damn boat.
00:18:01- You guys hear about this? - What?
00:18:03Two nights ago, a sophomore choked the network from a laptop at Kirkland.
00:18:06- Really? - At 4:00 a.m.
00:18:09He set up a website where you vote on the hotness of female undergrads.
00:18:13What were we doing that none of us heard about this?
00:18:14I don't know.
00:18:16A three-hour low-rate technical row before breakfast.
00:18:18Full course load. Studying.
00:18:20Another three hours in the tank and then studying.
00:18:22I'm not sure how we missed it.
00:18:23How much activity was there on this thing?
00:18:25Twenty-two thousand page requests.
00:18:28Twenty-two thousand?
00:18:29Cam, this guy hacked the facebook of seven houses.
00:18:31He set up the whole website in one night, and he did it while he was drunk.
00:18:34Twenty-two thousand?
00:18:36- Well, how do you know he was drunk? - He was blogging simultaneously.
00:18:40- You know what I think? - Way ahead of you.
00:18:43This is our guy.
00:18:45Cameron Winklevoss.
00:18:50"Cameron" spelled the usual way.
00:18:51Tyler Winklevoss.
00:18:53Tyler spelled the usual way, and my last name is the same as my brother's.
00:18:56Mr. Zuckerberg, this is an Administrative Board hearing.
00:19:00You're being accused of intentionally breaching security,
00:19:03violating copyrights,
00:19:05violating individual privacy by creating the website
00:19:10You're also charged with being in violation of university policy,
00:19:13on distribution of digitized images.
00:19:15Before we begin with our questioning, you're allowed to make a statement.
00:19:19Would you like to do so?
00:19:23You know, I've already apologized in The Crimson to the ABHW,
00:19:28to Fuerza Latina,
00:19:29and to any women at Harvard who may have been insulted,
00:19:32as I take it that they were.
00:19:35As for any charges stemming from the breach of security,
00:19:37I believe I deserve some recognition from this board.
00:19:42- I'm sorry? - Yes.
00:19:45I don't understand.
00:19:46Which part?
00:19:48You deserve recognition?
00:19:50I believe I've pointed out some pretty gaping holes in your system.
00:19:53- Excuse me, may I? - Yes.
00:19:56Mr. Zuckerberg,
00:19:57I'm in charge of security for all computers on the Harvard network,
00:20:01and I can assure you of its sophistication.
00:20:03In fact, it was that level of sophistication that led us to you in less than four hours.
00:20:07- Four hours? - Yes, sir.
00:20:08That would be impressive,
00:20:10except if you had known what you were looking for,
00:20:11you would have seen it written on my dorm room window.
00:20:20Six months academic probation.
00:20:22Wow. Well, they had to make an example out of you.
00:20:24They had my blog.
00:20:26I shouldn't have written that thing about the farm animals.
00:20:28That was stupid.
00:20:29But I was kidding, for God's sakes. Doesn't anybody have a sense of humor?
00:20:32- I tried to stop you. - I know.
00:20:35How do you do this thing where you manage to get all girls to hate us?
00:20:39- And why do I let you? - I know.
00:20:41- You can't do that. - Wardo, I said I know.
00:20:43Okay, let's look at a sample problem.
00:20:45Suppose we're given a computer with a 16-bit virtual address
00:20:49and a page size of 256 bytes.
00:20:52The system uses one-level page tables that start at address hex 400.
00:20:57Maybe you want DMA on your 16-bit system. Who knows?
00:21:01The first few pages are reserved for hardware flags, etc.
00:21:04Assume page-table entries have eight status bits.
00:21:07The eight status bits would then be...
00:21:12And I see we have our first surrender.
00:21:15Don't worry, Mr. Zuckerberg.
00:21:16Brighter men than you have tried and failed this class.
00:21:19One valid bit, one modified bit, one reference bit and five permission bits.
00:21:25That is correct.
00:21:27Does everybody see how he got there?
00:21:37- You Mark Zuckerberg? - Yeah.
00:21:40- Cameron Winklevoss. - Hi.
00:21:42Tyler Winklevoss.
00:21:43Are you guys related?
00:21:45- That's good. - Funny.
00:21:46We never heard that before.
00:21:48So, what can I do for you? Did I insult your girlfriends?
00:21:50No. You didn't. Actually, I don't know.
00:21:52- Yeah, we never asked. - We should do that.
00:21:55We have an idea we want to talk to you about.
00:21:58You got a minute?
00:22:00You guys look like you spend some time at the gym.
00:22:03- We have to. - Why?
00:22:04We row crew.
00:22:07- Yeah, I've got a minute. - Great.
00:22:14- So, you ever been inside the Porcellian? - No.
00:22:16You understand we can't take you past the bike room,
00:22:17because you're not a member.
00:22:19I've heard.
00:22:23- You want a sandwich or something? - Okay.
00:22:26- Mark, right? - Yeah.
00:22:28- Mark, this is Divya Narendra, our partner. - Hi.
00:22:30We were really impressed with Facemash.
00:22:32When we checked you out, you also built CourseMatch.
00:22:34I don't know CourseMatch.
00:22:35You go online and see what courses your friends are taking.
00:22:38It's really smart, man.
00:22:42- Mark. - Yeah.
00:22:43We were talking about CourseMatch.
00:22:46It was kind of a no-brainer.
00:22:48But you invented something in high school, too, right?
00:22:50An app for an MP3 player that recognizes your taste in music.
00:22:54Anybody try to buy it?
00:22:57Wow. How much?
00:22:59Didn't sell it. Uploaded it for free.
00:23:01- For free? - Yeah.
00:23:06Okay, well, we have something that we've been working on for a while
00:23:09and we think it's great.
00:23:10It's called the Harvard Connection.
00:23:11You create your own page. Interests, bio, friends, pics.
00:23:15And then people can go online, see your bio, request to be your...
00:23:17Yeah, how is that different from MySpace or Friendster?
00:23:23Harvard. Edu.
00:23:25Harvard. Edu is the most prestigious e-mail address in the country, man.
00:23:27I mean, the whole site's kind of based on the idea that girls...
00:23:30Not to put anything indelicately, but...
00:23:32Girls wanna go with guys who go to Harvard.
00:23:33Divya and my brother don't have trouble putting things indelicately.
00:23:36The main difference between what we're talking about and MySpace or Friendster,
00:23:40or any of those other social networking sites is...
00:23:41Is exclusivity. Right?
00:23:45- Right. - Yeah.
00:23:46We'd love for you to work with us, Mark.
00:23:47I mean, we need a gifted programmer who's creative.
00:23:49And we know that you've been taking it in the shins.
00:23:51Women's groups are ready to declare a fatwa.
00:23:54But, you know, this could help rehabilitate your image.
00:23:57Wow. You would do that for me?
00:24:02We'd like to work with you.
00:24:03Our first programmer graduated and went to work for Google.
00:24:06Our second programmer just got overwhelmed with schoolwork.
00:24:09We would need you to build the site and write the code, and we'll provide all the...
00:24:12I'm in.
00:24:17I'm in.
00:24:20That's what you said?
00:24:22It was three or four years ago. I don't know what I said.
00:24:25When did you come to Eduardo?
00:24:26I don't understand that question.
00:24:28Do you remember answering in the affirmative?
00:24:31The affirmative?
00:24:32When did you come to Eduardo with the idea for Facebook?
00:24:34It was called The Facebook then.
00:24:37This doesn't need to be that difficult.
00:24:39I'm currently in the middle of two different lawsuits.
00:24:41Did you answer affirmatively
00:24:42when Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss and Divya Narendra
00:24:45asked you to build Harvard Connection?
00:24:46Did you say yes?
00:24:50I said I'd help.
00:24:51When did you approach Mr. Saverin with the idea for The Facebook?
00:24:54I wouldn't say I approached him.
00:24:56- Sy. - You can answer the question.
00:24:58At a party at Alpha Epsilon Pi.
00:25:00What's that?
00:25:02The Jewish fraternity.
00:25:05It was Caribbean Night.
00:25:24It's not that guys like me are generally attracted to Asian girls.
00:25:27It's that Asian girls are generally attracted to guys like me.
00:25:30I'm developing an algorithm to define the connection
00:25:32between Jewish guys and Asian girls.
00:25:34I don't think it's that complicated. They're hot, they're smart,
00:25:37they're not Jewish, and they can't dance.
00:25:40Hey, Mark's here.
00:25:46Be right back.
00:25:55I think I've come up with something.
00:25:56Hang on. I gotta tell you something that you're not gonna believe.
00:26:00I got punched by the Phoenix.
00:26:03- Are you kidding? - No.
00:26:04I mean, it's just the first of a four-step process,
00:26:07but they slid the invitation under my door tonight.
00:26:10I go to my first punch party tomorrow.
00:26:13You got punched by the Phoenix.
00:26:15Yeah, but, you know, it was probably just a diversity thing.
00:26:18It was just a diversity thing. Just ride that horse until...
00:26:21What did you wanna talk to me about?
00:26:22- Mark? - Yeah.
00:26:24You said you'd come up with something.
00:26:25Yeah, I think I've come up with something. Come outside and let's talk.
00:26:28It's 20 degrees outside.
00:26:29I can't stare at that loop of Niagara Falls,
00:26:31which has absolutely nothing to do with the Caribbean.
00:26:45People came to Facemash in a stampede, right?
00:26:48But it wasn't because they saw pictures of hot girls.
00:26:50You can go anywhere on the Internet and see pictures of hot girls.
00:26:53It was because they saw pictures of girls that they knew.
00:26:56People want to go on the Internet and check out their friends,
00:26:58so why not build a website that offers that?
00:27:00Friends, pictures, profiles, whatever you can visit.
00:27:03Browse around. Maybe it's someone you just met at a party.
00:27:05But I'm not talking about a dating site.
00:27:07I'm talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online.
00:27:13- I can't feel my legs. - I know.
00:27:15I'm totally psyched about this, too. But, Wardo?
00:27:18"It would be exclusive."
00:27:21You would have to know the people on the site to get past your own page.
00:27:23Like getting punched.
00:27:26Now, that's good.
00:27:27Wardo, it's like a final club, except we're the president.
00:27:30I told him I thought it sounded great.
00:27:33It was a great idea.
00:27:35There was nothing to hack.
00:27:36People were gonna provide their own pictures, their own information.
00:27:39And people had the ability to invite, or not invite, their friends to join.
00:27:45See, in a world where social structure was everything,
00:27:49that was the thing.
00:27:50It was a big project,
00:27:52and he was going to have to write tens of thousands of lines of code,
00:27:55so I wondered why he was coming to me and not his roommates,
00:27:58Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. They were programmers.
00:28:01We're gonna need a little start-up cash to rent the servers and get it online.
00:28:05So that was why.
00:28:06- Did he offer terms? - Yes.
00:28:08We'll split it, 70/30.
00:28:1070 for me, 30 for you for putting up the $1,000
00:28:13and for handling everything on the business end. You're CFO.
00:28:15And you said?
00:28:16I said, "Let's do it."
00:28:18Okay. Did he add anything else?
00:28:25It probably was a diversity thing.
00:28:29But so what?
00:28:30Why do you think he said that?
00:28:31Gretchen, excuse me for interrupting, but whose discovery is this?
00:28:34Sy, if you'll let me continue with my line of questioning.
00:28:36What are you suggesting?
00:28:37That I was jealous of Eduardo for getting punched by the Phoenix
00:28:39and began a plan to screw him out of a company
00:28:41- I hadn't even invented yet. - Were you?
00:28:42- Gretchen. - Jealous of Eduardo?
00:28:44Stop typing. We're off the record.
00:28:45Ma'am, I know you've done your homework,
00:28:46and so you know that money isn't a big part of my life.
00:28:48But at the moment, I could buy Mount Auburn Street,
00:28:50take the Phoenix Club and turn it into my ping-pong room.
00:28:57I'll let you know how the party is.
00:29:05We recognize that you're a plaintiff in one suit involving Facebook,
00:29:09and a witness in another.
00:29:10Yes, sir.
00:29:11At any time in the weeks prior to Mark's telling you his idea,
00:29:14did he mention Tyler Winklevoss, Cameron Winklevoss,
00:29:17Divya Narendra or Harvard Connection?
00:29:19Yes. He said they'd asked him to work on their site,
00:29:22but that he looked at what they had and decided it wasn't worth his time.
00:29:26He said even his most pathetic friends
00:29:28knew more about getting people interested in a website than these guys.
00:29:32"These guys," meaning my clients.
00:29:34Yes. He resented... Mark resented that your clients thought
00:29:38that he needed to rehabilitate his image after Facemash.
00:29:40But Mark didn't want to rehabilitate anything.
00:29:42With Facemash, he'd hacked into the Harvard computers,
00:29:45he'd thumbed his nose at the Ad Board, he'd gotten a lot of notoriety.
00:29:48Facemash did exactly what he wanted it to do.
00:29:51Were you aware that while Mr. Zuckerberg was building The Facebook,
00:29:53he was also communicating with the plaintiffs?
00:29:55Not at the time, I wasn't. But...
00:29:59It really didn't have much to do with the Winklevosses' dating site.
00:30:02How would you know? You weren't even there.
00:30:05Were you aware that while Mr. Zuckerberg was building The Facebook,
00:30:08he was leading the plaintiffs to believe he was building Harvard Connection?
00:30:11You're offering a conclusion not found in evidence.
00:30:13We are about to find it in evidence.
00:30:16From Mark Zuckerberg to Tyler Winklevoss.
00:30:19November 30th, 2003.
00:30:21"I read over all the stuff you sent me re: Harvard Connection.
00:30:23"And it seems like it shouldn't take too long to implement.
00:30:26"So we can talk about it after I get all the basic functionality up tomorrow night."
00:30:31From Mark Zuckerberg to Cameron Winklevoss. December 1 st, 2003.
00:30:35"Sorry I was unreachable tonight. I just got about three of your missed calls.
00:30:39"I was working on a problem set for my systems class."
00:30:42From Mark Zuckerberg to Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss.
00:30:44December 10, 2003.
00:30:47"This week has been pretty busy thus far with classes and work,
00:30:50"so I think it's probably best to postpone the meeting."
00:30:53"I'm also really busy tomorrow."
00:30:55Okay, anybody else feel like there's something up with this guy?
00:30:59Tell him okay,
00:31:00but we do have to make sure that we meet up before we all go off for break.
00:31:03I know, I know. Yeah, watch out.
00:31:37Hey, Mark.
00:31:38I need a dedicated Linux box running Apache with a MySQL back end.
00:31:41It's gonna cost a little more money.
00:31:43- How much more? - About 200 more.
00:31:45- Do we need it? - Gotta handle the traffic.
00:31:51- Do it. - I already did.
00:31:57Hey, guess what?
00:32:00I made the second cut.
00:32:02That's good.
00:32:04You should be proud of that right there. Don't worry if you don't make it any further.
00:32:12I'll get out of here.
00:32:14From Mark Zuckerberg to Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss
00:32:16and Divya Narendra.
00:32:17December 15th, 2003.
00:32:19"I have a CS problem set that I'm just getting started with
00:32:22"and it should be about 15 hours of coding, so I'll be busy tomorrow night."
00:32:26"I won't really be free to meet until next Wednesday afternoon."
00:32:29"I have to cancel Wednesday afternoon.
00:32:31"I've basically been in the lab this whole time, and also I..."
00:32:34"...won't be able to do Saturday, as I have to meet up with my parents."
00:32:43As the plaque reads, this is John Harvard, founder of Harvard University in 1638.
00:32:48It's also called the Statue of Three Lies.
00:32:51What are the three lies?
00:32:54Mr. Dowd.
00:32:55The three lies. First...
00:32:58- Take your pants off. - I know.
00:33:01Mr. Saverin.
00:33:03One, Harvard was founded in 1636, not 1638.
00:33:06Two, Harvard was not founded by John Harvard.
00:33:09And three, that is not John Harvard.
00:33:10Who is it?
00:33:12It's a friend of the sculptor, Daniel Chester.
00:33:17Keep your jacket on.
00:33:22Thirty-nine days after Mr. Zuckerberg's initial meeting with my clients,
00:33:26and he still hadn't completed work on Harvard Connection.
00:33:29But on January 11th, 2004,
00:33:33Mr. Zuckerberg registered the domain name The Facebook
00:33:36via Network Solutions.
00:33:40To the best of your knowledge, had he even begun work on Harvard Connection?
00:33:45Not to my knowledge. No.
00:33:51What in the world is this?
00:33:55"Hey, Cameron, I'm still a little skeptical that we have enough functionality in the site
00:33:59"to really draw the attention and gain the critical mass necessary
00:34:01"to get a site like this to run"?
00:34:05"We'll speak soon"?
00:34:08This is the first time he mentioned any problem?
00:34:11Yes, it was.
00:34:12You sent 36 e-mails to Mr. Zuckerberg and received 16 e-mails in return,
00:34:17and this was the first time he indicated he was not happy.
00:34:19That's correct.
00:34:20He had 42 days to study our system and get out ahead.
00:34:23- Do you see any of your code on Facebook? - Sy, could you...
00:34:25Did I use any of your code?
00:34:27You stole our whole goddamn idea.
00:34:29- Fellas. - What? for Harvard guys?
00:34:31Can I continue with my deposition?
00:34:32You know, you really don't need a forensics team to get to the bottom of this.
00:34:36If you guys were the inventors of Facebook,
00:34:39you'd have invented Facebook.
00:34:41I can't wait to stand over your shoulder and watch you write us a check.
00:34:44No shit.
00:34:47Let's continue.
00:34:50February 4, 2004.
00:34:59There is a girl in your art history class. Her name is Stephanie Attis.
00:35:03Do you happen to know if she has a boyfriend?
00:35:07Have you ever seen her with anyone?
00:35:11And, if not, do you happen to know if she's looking to go out with anyone?
00:35:17People don't walk around with a sign on them that says...
00:35:53We were supposed to meet at 9:00.
00:35:55- Have you slept yet? - I have to add something.
00:36:10Shit, that looks good. That looks really good.
00:36:12It's clean and simple.
00:36:14No Disneyland, no "live nude girls." But watch.
00:36:18What'd you write?
00:36:20"Relationship Status." "Interested In."
00:36:23This is what drives life at college. "Are you having sex or aren't you?"
00:36:26It's why people take certain classes and sit where they sit and do what they do.
00:36:29And at its center, you know, that's what The Facebook is gonna be about.
00:36:33People are gonna log on because after all the cake and watermelon,
00:36:35there's a chance they're actually gonna...
00:36:37- Gonna get laid. a girl. Yes.
00:36:39That is really good.
00:36:40And that was it.
00:36:42- What do you mean? - It's ready.
00:36:43- It's ready? Right now? - Yeah. That was it.
00:36:46And here's the masthead.
00:36:48- You made a masthead. - Yeah.
00:36:49- "Eduardo Saverin, co-founder and CFO." - Yeah.
00:36:53You have no idea what that's gonna mean to my father.
00:36:55Sure I do.
00:36:59So when's it going live?
00:37:01Right now. Get your laptop out.
00:37:04What? Why do we need my laptop?
00:37:06Because you got e-mails for everybody at the Phoenix.
00:37:14Yeah, I'm not sure if it's gonna be cool with them that I spam their e-mails.
00:37:18- This is not spam. - No, I know it's not spam.
00:37:20If we send it to our friends, it's just gonna bounce around Dworkin.
00:37:23I haven't gotten in yet.
00:37:24These guys know people. And I need their e-mails.
00:37:29- Sure. - Good.
00:37:32Give me the mailing list.
00:37:35These guys.
00:37:36Yeah, they're literary geniuses
00:37:38because the world's most obvious Lewis Carroll reference is in...
00:37:40- They're not so bad. - I'm just saying.
00:37:41Yeah, you're right.
00:37:50The site's live.
00:37:53You know, let's go get a drink and celebrate.
00:37:56I'm buying.
00:38:03Mark, are you praying?
00:38:18Whatever happened to Cole Porter and Irving Berlin?
00:38:21It's a Valentine's Day theme. They're playing love songs.
00:38:23Good point.
00:38:24'Cause Cole Porter and Irving Berlin never wrote any love songs.
00:38:30Honey, you should put your laptop away.
00:38:33Seven different people spammed me the same link.
00:38:35- KC. - What is it?
00:38:37I don't know.
00:38:38But I'm really hoping it's Cats That Look Like Hitler,
00:38:40'cause I can never get enough of that.
00:38:43No, it's not.
00:38:58This isn't mine.
00:39:00Okay, what is wrong?
00:39:04It's fine. It's fine. It's fine.
00:39:24Not now!
00:39:25We need 20 minutes!
00:39:29I just wanted to let you know that Zuckerberg stole our website.
00:39:34Mark Zuckerberg?
00:39:36He stole our website.
00:39:39It's been live for more than 36 hours.
00:39:46Mr. Hotchkiss? Ty, lawyer's on the phone with Dad.
00:39:48Yes, sir, I'm here with my brother Tyler and our business partner Divya.
00:39:51"Welcome to The Facebook.
00:39:52"The Facebook is an online directory that connects people
00:39:54"through different social networks.
00:39:55"You must have a harvard. Edu address to register."
00:39:59Yeah, I called earlier. I'm looking for Mark Zuckerberg.
00:40:01Yes, sir. He's actually quoted a couple times.
00:40:03I can read it to you.
00:40:04"'Everyone's been talking a lot about a universal facebook within Harvard,' he says."
00:40:07"He" meaning Mark.
00:40:08"'I think it's kind of silly that it would take the university
00:40:10"'a couple of years to get around to it.
00:40:11"'I can do a classier job than they can and I did it in a week."'
00:40:14Tell him Divya Narendra called.
00:40:15- I know, that's how he talks. - Appreciate it.
00:40:18"As of yesterday evening, Zuckerberg said,
00:40:20"over 650 students had registered to use thefacebook. Com.
00:40:24"He said he anticipated that 900 students would have joined the site by this morning."
00:40:27Yeah, Divya was just reading that 650 students signed up for it on the first day.
00:40:31God, if I was a drug dealer I couldn't give free drugs to 650 people in one day.
00:40:35And this guy doesn't have three friends to rub together to make a fourth.
00:40:39All right. Yes, that's what we'll do, Mr. Hotchkiss.
00:40:40We'll put all this together and we'll e-mail it to you.
00:40:42Well, you won't be able to go on the website yourself.
00:40:45Because you don't have a Harvard...
00:40:47You know what, it would just be easier for us to e-mail it to you.
00:40:50I'm sure you're right.
00:40:51He's a good guy and he's very bright and I'm sure he didn't mean to do...
00:40:55...what he did.
00:40:57All right, thank you very much. And, Dad...
00:40:59All right, love you, too.
00:41:00- This is a good guy? - We don't know that he's not a good guy.
00:41:03We know he stole our idea.
00:41:04We know he lied to our faces for a month and a half.
00:41:06- No, he never lied to our faces. - Okay, he never saw our faces.
00:41:08Fine, he lied to our e-mail accounts and he gave himself a 42-day head start,
00:41:11because he knows what apparently you don't,
00:41:14which is that getting there first is everything.
00:41:15I'm a competitive racer, Div.
00:41:17I don't think you need to school me in the importance of getting there first. Thank you.
00:41:20- That was your father's lawyer? - It was his in-house counsel.
00:41:22He's gonna look at all this and if he thinks it's appropriate
00:41:24he'll send a cease-and-desist letter.
00:41:26What's that gonna do?
00:41:27What, do you wanna hire an IP lawyer and sue him?
00:41:28No, I wanna hire the Sopranos to beat the shit out of him with a hammer.
00:41:31- We don't even have to do that. - That's right.
00:41:33We could do that ourselves. I'm 6'5", 220, and there's two of me.
00:41:36- I'm with this guy. - Well, whatever.
00:41:37I'm saying, let's calm down until we know what we're talking about.
00:41:39How much more information are you waiting for?
00:41:42We met with Mark three times, we exchanged 52 e-mails,
00:41:45we can prove that he looked at the code.
00:41:46- What is that on the bottom of the page? - It says "A Mark Zuckerberg production."
00:41:49- On the home page? - On every page.
00:41:52Shit, I need a second to let the classiness waft over me.
00:41:55Okay, look, we don't know...
00:41:56Cam, they wrote, "Zuckerberg said he hoped the privacy options
00:41:58"would help restore his reputation
00:42:00"following student outrage over facemash. Com."
00:42:03That's exactly what we said to him. He's giving us the finger in The Crimson.
00:42:07While we're waiting for Dad's lawyer to look this stuff over,
00:42:09we can at least get something going in the paper so people know...
00:42:11- What? ...that this is in dispute.
00:42:13We're not starting a knife fight in The Crimson.
00:42:15And we're not suing anybody.
00:42:17Why not?
00:42:19I don't understand, I don't understand. Why not?
00:42:23He's gonna say it's stupid.
00:42:25What, who, me?
00:42:26Say it. Why not?
00:42:29Because we're gentlemen of Harvard.
00:42:31This is Harvard, where you don't plant stories and you don't sue people.
00:42:36You thought he was gonna be the only one who thought that was stupid?
00:42:39During the time when you say you had this idea,
00:42:43did you know Tyler and Cameron came from a family of means?
00:42:47"A family of means"?
00:42:48Did you know their father was wealthy?
00:42:51I'm not sure why you're asking me that.
00:42:53It's not important you be sure why I'm asking.
00:42:55- It's not important to you. - Sy.
00:42:58Did you know that they came from money?
00:43:00I had no idea whether they came from money or not.
00:43:02In one of your e-mails to Mr. Narendra,
00:43:04you referenced Howard Winklevoss' consulting firm.
00:43:07If you say so.
00:43:09Howard Winklevoss founded a firm whose assets are in the hundreds of millions.
00:43:13You also knew Tyler and Cameron were members
00:43:15of a Harvard final club called the Porcellian.
00:43:17They pointed that out.
00:43:19- Excuse us for inviting you in. - To the bike room.
00:43:21Please. So it's safe to say you were aware that my clients had money.
00:43:28Let me tell you why I'm asking.
00:43:29I'm wondering why, if you needed $1,000 for an Internet venture,
00:43:33you didn't ask my clients for it.
00:43:34They had demonstrated an interest to you in that kind of thing.
00:43:37I went to my friend for the money because that's who I wanted to be partners with.
00:43:40Eduardo was the president of the Harvard Investors Association,
00:43:43and he was also my best friend.
00:43:45Your best friend is suing you for $600 million.
00:43:50I didn't know that. Tell me more.
00:43:52Eduardo, what happened after the initial launch?
00:43:54I'm sorry, Sy, would you mind addressing him as Mr. Saverin?
00:43:57- Gretchen, they're best friends. - Not anymore.
00:43:58Well, we already went through this on the... Never mind.
00:44:01Mr. Saverin, what happened after the initial launch?
00:44:03It exploded.
00:44:05Everybody on campus was using it.
00:44:07"Facebook me" was a common expression after two weeks.
00:44:11And Mark?
00:44:12And Mark was the biggest thing on a campus that included 19 Nobel laureates,
00:44:1615 Pulitzer Prize winners, two future Olympians, and a movie star.
00:44:20Who was the movie star?
00:44:22Does it matter?
00:44:24No. Out of Town News and picked up that copy of Popular Electronics magazine
00:44:31with the MIT'S Altair kit on the cover.
00:44:34It was a beautiful day and I was in my Radcliffe dorm room.
00:44:36He brought that magazine up and he showed it to me and he said,
00:44:38"Look, it's gonna happen without us. We've gotta start now."
00:44:42And I said, "Okay. Let's get BASIC out there."
00:44:46Now, most of you think you know the rest of the story, but you may not.
00:44:49The beginnings of this industry were very humble.
00:44:51That kit computer on the cover of that magazine had an 8080 processor in it.
00:44:56Unless you paid extra for a 1 K memory board, you got 256 bytes.
00:45:00So the challenge when I wrote BASIC wasn't just to run at 4 k-bytes,
00:45:04but I also had to leave room for the users to run their programs in 4 k-bytes.
00:45:10Your friend. Is that Mark Zuckerberg?
00:45:14- He made The Facebook. - Yeah.
00:45:16I mean, it's both of ours. We're...
00:45:19Yeah, we... Yes.
00:45:22I'm Christy Ling. This is Alice.
00:45:25Well, very nice to meet you.
00:45:28Facebook me when you get home.
00:45:29You know, maybe we can all go out and grab a drink.
00:45:33Absolutely do that.
00:45:41She said, "Facebook me and we can all go for a drink later,"
00:45:45which is stunningly great for two reasons.
00:45:46One, she said "facebook me," right? And then the other is, well, you know...
00:45:49They wanna have drinks later.
00:45:50Yes, have you ever heard so many different good things
00:45:52packed into one regular-sized sentence?
00:45:53Excuse me, Mark?
00:45:57I'm Stuart Singer. I'm in your OS lab.
00:46:01- Awesome job with The Facebook. - Awesome job.
00:46:04- I'm Bob. - How you doing?
00:46:06You know, I could swear he was looking at you
00:46:07when he said the next Bill Gates could be right in this room.
00:46:11I doubt it.
00:46:12And I showed up late. I don't even know who the speaker was.
00:46:16It was Bill Gates.
00:46:19Shit, that makes sense.
00:46:22All right. Thanks, guys.
00:46:26- Are you a moron? - Are you medically stupid?
00:46:28You can't tell Bill Gates is in front of you for an hour?
00:46:30I wasn't wearing my contacts.
00:46:32Can I get a Glock and kill you?
00:46:36It's time to monetize the thing.
00:46:38What were their names?
00:46:39- Hear what I just said? - When?
00:46:41I said it's time to monetize the site.
00:46:44What does that mean?
00:46:45It means it's time for the website to start generating revenue.
00:46:48No, I know what the word means. I'm asking how you wanna do it.
00:46:52- Advertising. - No.
00:46:54Well, we got 4,000 members.
00:46:56'Cause The Facebook is cool,
00:46:57and if we start installing pop-ups for Mountain Dew, it's not gonna be cool.
00:47:00Well, I wasn't thinking Mountain Dew, but at some point,
00:47:02and I'm talking as the business end of the company, the site...
00:47:05We don't even know what it is yet. We don't know what it is.
00:47:08We don't know what it can be. We don't know what it will be.
00:47:10We know that it is cool.
00:47:12That is a priceless asset I'm not giving up.
00:47:14- So when will it be finished? - It won't be finished.
00:47:17That's the point. The way fashion's never finished.
00:47:18- What? - Fashion. Fashion is never finished.
00:47:21You're talking about fashion? Really, you?
00:47:22I'm talking about the idea of it and I'm saying that it's never finished.
00:47:25Okay. But they manage to make money selling pants.
00:47:30Mark, what is this?
00:47:31- What? - This.
00:47:33It's called a cease-and-desist letter. What were their names?
00:47:35- Who? - The girls.
00:47:36When did you get this?
00:47:37About 10 days ago. Right after we launched the site.
00:47:40- Jesus Christ. - Hey, the girls. What were their names?
00:47:42The Winklevoss twins are saying that you stole their idea.
00:47:45I find that to be a little more than mildly annoying.
00:47:47Oh, well, they find it to be intellectual property theft.
00:47:51- Look... - Why didn't you show this to me?
00:47:52It was addressed to me.
00:47:53They're saying that we stole The Facebook from Divya Narendra and the Winklevosses.
00:47:57- I know what it says. - Did we?
00:47:59Did we what?
00:48:00Don't screw around with me now. Look at me.
00:48:02The letter says we could face legal action.
00:48:04No, it says I could face legal action.
00:48:06This is from a lawyer, Mark. They must feel they have some grounds.
00:48:08- The lawyer is their father's house counsel. - Do they have grounds?
00:48:11The grounds are our thing is cool and popular,
00:48:13and Harvard Connection is lame.
00:48:14Wardo, I didn't use any of their code, I promise.
00:48:17I didn't use anything.
00:48:18Look, a guy who builds a nice chair doesn't owe money
00:48:20to everyone who ever has built a chair, okay?
00:48:21They came to me with an idea, I had a better one.
00:48:23- Why didn't you show me this letter? - I didn't think it was a big deal.
00:48:31So if there's something wrong, if there's ever anything wrong, you can tell me.
00:48:37I'm the guy that wants to help. This is our thing.
00:48:39Now, is there anything that you need to tell me?
00:48:47What are we doing about this?
00:48:49I went to a 3L at Student Legal Services and he told me to write them back.
00:48:53And what did you say?
00:48:54"When we met in January, I expressed my doubts about the site.
00:48:57"Where it stood with graphics, how much programing was left
00:48:59"that I had not anticipated."
00:49:01"The lack of hardware we had to deal with site use,
00:49:03"the lack of promotion that would go on to successfully launch the website."
00:49:07This was the first time you raised any of those concerns, right?
00:49:10I'd raised concerns before.
00:49:12- Bullshit. - Not to us.
00:49:13Gentlemen, I'm talking about at the meeting in January to which this letter is referring.
00:49:19Let me rephrase this.
00:49:21You sent my client 16 e-mails. In the first 15 you didn't raise any concerns.
00:49:25Is that a question?
00:49:27In the 16th e-mail you raised concerns about the site's functionality.
00:49:30- Were you leading them on for six weeks? - No.
00:49:33Then why didn't you raise any of these concerns before?
00:49:36- It's raining. - I'm sorry?
00:49:38It just started raining.
00:49:39Mr. Zuckerberg, do I have your full attention?
00:49:46Do you think I deserve it?
00:49:48Do you think I deserve your full attention?
00:49:52I had to swear an oath before we began this deposition
00:49:54and I don't wanna perjure myself, so I have a legal obligation to say no.
00:49:57Okay. No. You don't think I deserve your attention?
00:50:01I think if your clients wanna sit on my shoulders and call themselves tall,
00:50:04they have a right to give it a try,
00:50:05but there's no requirement that I enjoy sitting here listening to people lie.
00:50:10You have part of my attention. You have the minimum amount.
00:50:13The rest of my attention is back at the offices of Facebook,
00:50:16where my colleagues and I are doing things that no one in this room,
00:50:18including and especially your clients,
00:50:20are intellectually or creatively capable of doing.
00:50:24Did I adequately answer your condescending question?
00:50:34Well, I have 12:45. Why don't we say that's lunch?
00:50:39Back at 2:30.
00:50:42So what were their names?
00:50:45Their names were Christy and Alice,
00:50:50and they wanna have drinks tonight.
00:50:55You're not supposed to be in here. This is a men's room.
00:51:17Oh, my God.
00:51:20I don't care.
00:51:43Hey, man, sorry.
00:51:45A couple girls are freshening up in there.
00:51:54We have groupies.
00:52:04I'll be right back.
00:52:06Mark, where you going? Mark.
00:52:17I saw you from over there. I didn't know you came to this club a lot.
00:52:20- First time. - Mine, too.
00:52:22Could I talk to you alone for a second?
00:52:25I think I'm good right here.
00:52:26I just... I'd love to talk to you alone if we could just go someplace.
00:52:30Right here is fine.
00:52:32I don't know if you heard about this new website I launched.
00:52:36- The Facebook? - You called me a bitch on the Internet, Mark.
00:52:39That's why I wanted to talk to you.
00:52:41- On the Internet. - That's why I came over.
00:52:43Comparing women to farm animals.
00:52:45I didn't end up doing that.
00:52:47It didn't stop you from writing it.
00:52:48As if every thought that tumbles through your head was so clever
00:52:51it would be a crime for it not to be shared.
00:52:55The Internet's not written in pencil, Mark, it's written in ink,
00:52:57and you published that Erica Albright was a bitch,
00:53:00right before you made some ignorant crack about my family's name, my bra size,
00:53:05and then rated women based on their hotness.
00:53:08- Erica, is there a problem? - No, there's no problem.
00:53:11You write your snide bullshit from a dark room
00:53:13because that's what the angry do nowadays.
00:53:17I was nice to you. Don't torture me for it.
00:53:19If we could just go somewhere for a minute...
00:53:21I don't wanna be rude to my friends.
00:53:28Good luck with your video game.
00:53:30Hey, that was great. That was the right thing to do.
00:53:32You apologized, right?
00:53:37We have to expand.
00:53:38Sure. Mark?
00:53:42Is he mad about something?
00:53:45Okay, we are expanding to Yale and Columbia.
00:53:47Dustin, I want you to share the coding work with me.
00:53:49Chris, you're gonna be in charge of publicity and outreach,
00:53:51and you could start by getting a story in the BU student newspaper.
00:53:53It's The Bridge.
00:53:54They hate doing stories about Harvard.
00:53:55Somebody at the newspaper will be a computer science major.
00:53:57Tell them that Mark Zuckerberg will do 10 hours of free programing.
00:54:00Why do you want a story in the BU newspaper?
00:54:02Because I do. Now here's the arrangement.
00:54:03Eduardo is CFO and owns 30% of the company.
00:54:05Dustin is vice president and head of programing,
00:54:07and his 5% of the company will come from my end.
00:54:09Chris is director of publicity,
00:54:11and his compensation will depend on how much work he ends up doing.
00:54:13Any questions?
00:54:14- Who are the girls? - Sorry. They're Christy and Alice.
00:54:18- Hi. - Hi.
00:54:19- Hello. - Hi.
00:54:21Is there anything we can do?
00:54:23No, that's it.
00:54:24- Yale and Columbia, let's go. - And Stanford.
00:54:27- What? - Stanford.
00:54:29It's time for them to see this in Palo Alto.
00:54:37You don't want any lunch?
00:54:40You're welcome to some salad.
00:54:42No, thank you.
00:54:50This must be hard.
00:54:52Who are you?
00:54:54I'm Marylin Delpy. I introduced myself when we first...
00:54:56I mean, what do you do?
00:54:58I'm a second-year associate at the firm.
00:55:00My boss wanted me to sit in on the deposition phase.
00:55:04What are you doing?
00:55:06Checking in to see how it's going in Bosnia.
00:55:10They don't have roads, but they have Facebook.
00:55:18You must really hate the Winklevosses.
00:55:22I don't hate anybody.
00:55:24The Winklevi aren't suing me for intellectual property theft.
00:55:28They are suing me because for the first time in their lives,
00:55:30things didn't work out the way they were supposed to for them.
00:55:40He's expanding.
00:55:43He's expanding to Yale, Columbia and Stanford.
00:55:45It's gonna be in The Crimson tomorrow.
00:55:46- Really? - Yep.
00:55:47Well, looks like that cease-and-desist letter really scared the shit out of him, huh?
00:55:50I wanna hire a lawyer to file for injunctive relief and get the site taken down now.
00:55:54Every minute the site is up, Harvard Connection becomes less valuable.
00:55:57I want an injunction. I want damages. I want punitive relief.
00:56:00And I want him dead.
00:56:01Yeah, I want those things, too.
00:56:02Then why aren't we doing anything about it?
00:56:03Because we're gentlemen of Harvard?
00:56:05No, it's because you're not thinking how it's gonna look.
00:56:06How's it gonna look?
00:56:08Like my brother and I are in skeleton costumes
00:56:09chasing the Karate Kid around a high school gym.
00:56:11Cam, he's violated Massachusetts state law.
00:56:15When he goes to Connecticut, New York and California,
00:56:17he'll have violated federal law.
00:56:18And, by the way, he's in violation of Harvard law.
00:56:20There's no such thing as Harvard law.
00:56:22Wait. Yeah, there is.
00:56:30Harvard Student Handbook.
00:56:31Every freshman is issued one of these, and somewhere in this book it says...
00:56:34You can't steal from another student.
00:56:37This is what we needed. We're going to Summers.
00:56:39Well, you can't get a meeting with Larry Summers.
00:56:41My brother and I, we pay tuition at this school.
00:56:43We carry a 3.9 GPA at this school. We've won trophies for this school.
00:56:46And we'll be rowing in the Olympics for this school.
00:56:49I want a meeting with the goddamn president of this school.
00:56:52Why Stanford?
00:56:54Why do you think?
00:57:00I'm sorry.
00:57:02I'm late for biochem.
00:57:09You don't know my name, do you?
00:57:11Is it Stanford?
00:57:12I should just kick your ass.
00:57:15How do you go to a party and you meet someone...
00:57:17Amelia Ritter, but you prefer Amy. You're from Orinda.
00:57:20Your father's in commercial real estate and your mother's 10 years sober.
00:57:24What's my major?
00:57:25- Trombone. - Really?
00:57:28I remember something about a trombone.
00:57:35Your major's French.
00:57:36- And yours? - Mine?
00:57:38- I don't have one. - You haven't declared?
00:57:41I don't go to school.
00:57:42- You're kidding. - No.
00:57:45Well, where did you go to school?
00:57:47William Taft Elementary, for a little while.
00:57:51You're not like 15 years old or anything, are you?
00:57:56Wait, you're not like 15, are you?
00:58:00So, what do you do?
00:58:02I'm an entrepreneur.
00:58:04- You're unemployed. - I wouldn't say that.
00:58:06What would you say?
00:58:08That I'm an entrepreneur.
00:58:09Well, then, what was your latest preneur?
00:58:11Well, I founded an Internet company that let folks download and share music for free.
00:58:15Kind of like Napster?
00:58:17Exactly like Napster.
00:58:18What do you mean?
00:58:20I founded Napster.
00:58:21Sean Parker founded Napster.
00:58:24Nice to meet you.
00:58:25You're Sean Parker?
00:58:27You see, the shoe's on the other...
00:58:29- Foot? - Table, which has turned.
00:58:32I just slept with Sean Parker?
00:58:34You just slept on Sean Parker.
00:58:36- You're a zillionaire. - Not technically.
00:58:38What are you?
00:58:40Broke. There's not a lot of money in free music,
00:58:42even less when you're being sued by everyone who's ever been to the Grammys.
00:58:46This is blowing my mind.
00:58:47I appreciate that.
00:58:48I gotta hop in the shower and get ready for class.
00:58:50Biochem, even though you're a French major whose name is Amy.
00:58:54You passed.
00:58:56I'm a hard worker.
00:58:58There's juice or anything else you can find. Help yourself.
00:59:02You mind if I check my e-mail?
00:59:04Yeah, go ahead.
00:59:20- Amy! Can you come out here? - Yeah?
00:59:23Just a second.
00:59:28There's a snake in here, Amy.
00:59:34There isn't a snake, but I need to ask you something.
00:59:35Are you kidding me? I could've been killed.
00:59:39By running too fast and getting twisted in the curtain.
00:59:43What do you need to ask me?
00:59:44Yeah, I went to check my e-mail and there's a website open on your computer.
00:59:48Yeah, after you passed out last night I went on The Facebook for a little bit.
00:59:52- What's that? - The Facebook?
00:59:54Stanford's had it for, like, two weeks now.
00:59:57It's really awesome, except it's freakishly addictive.
01:00:00Seriously, I'm on the thing like five times a day.
01:00:03Mind if I send myself an e-mail?
01:00:04Yeah, is everything okay?
01:00:06Everything's great.
01:00:09I just need to find you, Mark Zuckerberg.
01:00:17I've never been in this building before.
01:00:18This building's 100 years older than the country it's in, so do be careful.
01:00:24We're sitting in chairs.
01:00:29Very good. You can go in now.
01:00:35That's their own stupidity. I should've been there.
01:00:38Well, darkness is the absence of light,
01:00:40and the stupidity in that instance was the absence of me.
01:00:43Catherine, I've got students in my office now.
01:00:45Students. Undergrads.
01:00:47I don't know.
01:00:48From the looks of it, they want to sell me a Brooks Brothers franchise.
01:00:51All right, bye-bye.
01:00:53- Good morning. - Good morning, sir.
01:00:54I'm Cameron Winklevoss and this is my brother, Tyler.
01:00:56And you're here because...
01:01:00Either of you can answer.
01:01:01I'm sorry, sir, I thought you were reading the letter.
01:01:03I've read the letter.
01:01:04Well, we came up with an idea for a website called Harvard Connection...
01:01:07We've since changed the name to ConnectU. And Mark Zuckerberg stole that idea...
01:01:11I understand.
01:01:12And I'm asking what you want me to do about it.
01:01:15Well, sir, in the Harvard Student Handbook, which is distributed to each freshman,
01:01:19under the heading "Standards of Conduct in the Harvard Community,"
01:01:21it says the college expects all students to be honest and forthcoming
01:01:25in their dealings with members in this community.
01:01:27Students are required to respect public and private ownership,
01:01:30and instances of theft, misappropriation or...
01:01:32- Anne? - Yes, sir?
01:01:34Punch me in the face. Go ahead.
01:01:39...or unauthorized use will result in disciplinary action,
01:01:43including the requirement to withdraw from the college.
01:01:45And you memorized that instead of doing what?
01:01:47What my brother and I came here today to ask of you, respectfully, of course...
01:01:51Sir, it's against university rules to steal from another student, plain and simple.
01:01:54And you've spoken to your House Master?
01:01:55Yes, sir. And the House Master made a recommendation to the Ad Board,
01:01:58but the Ad Board won't see us.
01:01:59Have you tried dealing with the other student directly?
01:02:01Mr. Zuckerberg hasn't been responding to any of our e-mails or phone calls
01:02:04for the last two weeks.
01:02:05He doesn't answer when we knock on his door at Kirkland,
01:02:07and the closest I've come to dealing with him face-to-face
01:02:09is when I saw him on the quad and chased him through Harvard Square.
01:02:11You chased him?
01:02:13I saw him and I know he saw me. I went after him and then he disappeared.
01:02:16- I don't see this as a university issue. - Of course this is a university issue.
01:02:19There's a code of ethics and an honor code and he violated them both.
01:02:22You enter into a code of ethics with the university, not with each other.
01:02:26I'm sorry, President Summers, but what you just said makes no sense to me at all.
01:02:30I'm devastated by that.
01:02:31What my brother means is, if Mark Zuckerberg walked into our dorm room
01:02:34and stole our computer, that would be a university issue.
01:02:36I really don't know. This office doesn't handle petty larceny.
01:02:38This isn't petty larceny.
01:02:40This idea is potentially worth millions of dollars.
01:02:42- Millions? - Yes.
01:02:43You might just be letting your imaginations run away with you.
01:02:46Sir, I honestly don't think you're in any position to make that call.
01:02:49I was the US Treasury Secretary. I'm in some position to make that call.
01:02:53Letting our imaginations run away with us
01:02:55is exactly what we were told to do in your freshman address.
01:02:57Well, then I would suggest that you let your imaginations
01:03:00run away with you on a new project.
01:03:01You would?
01:03:02Yes. Everyone at Harvard's inventing something.
01:03:04Harvard undergraduates believe that inventing a job is better than finding a job.
01:03:09So I'll suggest again that the two of you come up with a new new project.
01:03:12- I'm sorry, sir, but that's not the point. - Please, arrive at the point.
01:03:16You don't have to be an intellectual property expert
01:03:17to understand the difference between right and wrong.
01:03:19And you're saying that I don't?
01:03:21- Of course I'm not saying that, sir. - I'm saying that.
01:03:23- Really? - Sir.
01:03:25Anne, how did they get this appointment?
01:03:27Colleagues of their father.
01:03:30Let me tell you something, Mr. Winklevoss, Mr. Winklevoss,
01:03:33since you're on the subject of right and wrong.
01:03:35This action, this meeting, the two of you being here is wrong.
01:03:40It's not worthy of Harvard. It's not what Harvard saw in you.
01:03:43You don't get special treatment.
01:03:46- We never asked... - Just start another project?
01:03:48Like we're making a diorama for a science fair?
01:03:50If you have a problem with that, Mr. Winklevoss...
01:03:52We never asked for special treatment.
01:03:53...the courts are always at your disposal. Is there anything else I can do for you?
01:03:57You can take the Harvard Student Handbook and shove it...
01:04:00Thank you very much for your time, sir.
01:04:09Broke your 335-year-old doorknob.
01:04:13Eduardo, spring break, you and Mr. Zuckerberg took a trip to New York.
01:04:16- Yes. - What was the purpose of the trip?
01:04:19Well, as CFO, I had set up some meetings with potential advertisers.
01:04:24Who paid for the trip?
01:04:25It was paid for out of the $1,000 account I had set up a few months earlier.
01:04:28At this point, your $1,000 was the only money that had been put into the company?
01:04:32- Yes. - How did you feel the meetings went?
01:04:35- They went terribly. - Why?
01:04:38Mark was asleep.
01:04:39I was not asleep.
01:04:40Can I rephrase my answer?
01:04:42I wish he'd been asleep.
01:04:47So we're in 29 schools now, with over 75,000 members.
01:04:51People who go on The Facebook
01:04:52tend to stay on longer than almost any other website.
01:04:55Now, here's the most impressive statistic.
01:04:5691% of people who try it once will come back.
01:05:00- Now, if you'll allow me... - Excuse me one second.
01:05:02What sound is he making? Is that like a tsk?
01:05:07It wasn't a tsk.
01:05:09It was...
01:05:11Like a glottal stop.
01:05:13Almost a gag reflex.
01:05:17Guys, what is this?
01:05:19There was one more meeting scheduled for the New York trip.
01:05:21Yes, it was a dinner.
01:05:23It was set up through my girlfriend at the time.
01:05:24Would you say that Mark was excited about this meeting?
01:05:27Yes. Very.
01:05:30- Look, they're not gonna card us. - They might.
01:05:32- I mean, look around. - It'll be embarrassing.
01:05:34- Tell him they're not gonna card us. - They're not gonna card us.
01:05:37- Mark... - Are you gonna talk about ads again?
01:05:39Unless you're the ballet theater of Hartford,
01:05:41the purpose of a business is to make a profit.
01:05:43It isn't a business yet.
01:05:44That's tough for me, 'cause my... Never mind.
01:05:51He's 25 minutes late.
01:05:52He founded Napster when he was 19. He can be late.
01:05:55- He's not a god. - Then what is he?
01:05:57He's 25 minutes late.
01:05:58I think Wardo's jealous.
01:06:00I honestly wasn't jealous. I was nervous.
01:06:04Well, I didn't know him at all, but I had done a search and I'd asked around.
01:06:08And he struck me as kind of a...
01:06:13A wild card.
01:06:16He crashed out of two pretty big Internet companies in spectacular fashion,
01:06:19he's had a reputation with drugs...
01:06:21He also founded the companies.
01:06:22We don't need him.
01:06:24He's here.
01:06:28No, no, take your time.
01:06:30- And he does own a watch. - Stop it.
01:06:34- I'm Sean Parker. - How do you do?
01:06:36You must be Eduardo. And Christy. And Mark.
01:06:39- Great to meet you. - Great to meet you.
01:06:41You guys don't have anything in front of you.
01:06:42- No. - Tori.
01:06:44We were waiting.
01:06:45- Hey, baby boy. - Can you bring out some things?
01:06:47The lacquered pork with that ginger confit. Tuna tartare?
01:06:50And the lobster claws, that'll get us started.
01:06:52Christy, what do you like to drink?
01:06:55An appletini.
01:06:57Great. Four of those.
01:06:59From that point on, it was a Seanathon.
01:07:11The question was, "What did you talk about?"
01:07:25He took us through his episode with Napster.
01:07:27I didn't wanna spend my 20s as a professional defendant.
01:07:30Who knew? The music industry doesn't have a sense of humor.
01:07:34We tried to sell the company to pay the 35 million they said we owed in royalties,
01:07:37but I guess to them that was a little like selling a stolen car to pay for the stolen gas.
01:07:42So we said screw it, declared bankruptcy.
01:07:45- But you made a name for yourself. - And you are dry.
01:07:47- Tori! - No, no, I'm good.
01:07:49And then he went on to his second business venture,
01:07:52which was an online Rolodex that he got thrown out of by Case Equity.
01:07:55And I wanted to do it nice this time.
01:07:58I put on a tie and I shined my shoes, but nobody wants to take orders from a kid.
01:08:01So let me tell you what happens to a 20-year-old at the top of a hot dot-com.
01:08:04- I'm not a psychiatrist, but... - I'm glad we've got that on the record.
01:08:08You're not a psychiatrist, but what?
01:08:10A psychiatrist would say that he was paranoid.
01:08:13They'll hire private detectives who'll follow you day and night.
01:08:16You're a target for high-priced escorts.
01:08:18I can't prove it, but I know they tap my phones.
01:08:20Whatever it is that's gonna trip you up, you've done already.
01:08:23Private behavior is a relic of a time gone by.
01:08:25And if somehow, someway, you've managed to live your life like the Dalai Lama,
01:08:28they'll make shit up.
01:08:30Because they don't want you, they want your idea.
01:08:33And they want you to say "thank you" while you...
01:08:34Excuse me.
01:08:36...wipe your chin and walk away.
01:08:37That's what happened to you?
01:08:38And delusional.
01:08:41Yes. But there'll be payback at Case.
01:08:44I brought down the record companies with Napster
01:08:45and Case'll suffer for their sins, too.
01:08:47Sorry, you didn't bring down the record companies.
01:08:50They won.
01:08:51- In court. - Yeah.
01:08:53You wanna buy a Tower Records, Eduardo?
01:08:58And he told story after story about life in Silicon Valley,
01:09:01and parties at Stanford and down in LA, and friends who'd become millionaires...
01:09:06But mostly how Mark had to... He had to come to California.
01:09:11And then he got around to The Facebook.
01:09:14So, tell me about your progress.
01:09:16Well, we're in 29 schools now. We got over 75,000 members.
01:09:20- Tell me about the strategy you're using. - Okay.
01:09:22For instance, we wanted Baylor, in Texas,
01:09:24but Baylor already had a social network on campus.
01:09:26So instead of going right after them,
01:09:28we made a list of every school within 100 miles...
01:09:30You put The Facebook on those campuses first.
01:09:31Pretty soon all the Baylor kids saw their friends on our site and we were in.
01:09:34It's called the Little Bighorn. That's smart, Mark.
01:09:35- Thanks, that was mine. - Easy.
01:09:37Hey, you know what? Settle an argument for us.
01:09:39I say it's time to start making money from The Facebook,
01:09:41but Mark doesn't want advertising. Who's right?
01:09:44Neither of you yet.
01:09:46The Facebook is cool, that's what it's got going for it.
01:09:49You don't wanna ruin it with ads because ads aren't cool.
01:09:52It's like you're throwing the greatest party on campus
01:09:54and someone's saying it's gotta be over by 11:00.
01:09:55That's exactly right.
01:09:56- You don't even know what the thing is yet. - Exactly.
01:09:59How big it can get, how far it can go. This is no time to take your chips down.
01:10:02A million dollars isn't cool. You know what's cool?
01:10:08"A billion dollars."
01:10:13And that shut everybody up.
01:10:15And that's where you're headed. A billion-dollar valuation.
01:10:19Unless you take bad advice, in which case you may as well have come up with
01:10:21a chain of very successful yogurt shops.
01:10:24When you go fishing, you can catch a lot of fish or you can catch a big fish.
01:10:28You ever walk into a guy's den and see a picture of him standing next to 14 trout?
01:10:31- No, he's holding a 3,000-pound marlin. - Yep.
01:10:33- That's a good analogy. - Okay.
01:10:34But we all know marlins don't really weigh 3,000 pounds, right?
01:10:37Have you seen the big ones up close?
01:10:38No, but I don't think the guy's holding a marlin the size of a Range Rover.
01:10:41That would be a really big fish and a very strong guy.
01:10:43You think we might be getting away from the point?
01:10:45I don't have a dog in this fight. I'm just a fan who came to say hi.
01:10:49He owned Mark after that dinner.
01:10:52He picked up the check, he told Mark they'd talk again soon,
01:10:55and he was gone.
01:10:56But not before he made his biggest contribution to the company.
01:11:02Drop the "The." Just "Facebook."
01:11:05It's cleaner.
01:11:13Goodbye, sweetie.
01:11:20That's gotta be some kind of land speed record for talking.
01:11:23You wanna end the party at 11:00.
01:11:27- I'm trying to pay for the party. - There won't be a party unless it's cool.
01:11:31So, what do you think?
01:11:32Yeah, sure, let's drop the "The."
01:11:34I meant to catching the marlin instead of the 14 trout.
01:11:38Doesn't that sound good?
01:11:39If you're a trout.
01:11:41I'm going to enter this into the record.
01:11:42Incorporation papers for Facebook, an LLC registered in Florida.
01:11:46- Why Florida? - It's where my family lives.
01:11:48And ask the respondent to stipulate that the articles of incorporation
01:11:51state the ownership as follows: 65% for Mark Zuckerberg,
01:11:5530% for Eduardo Saverin and 5% for Dustin Moskovitz.
01:11:58Yeah, we stipulate.
01:11:59- And that was April 13th, 2004. - You can mark it.
01:12:02You have anything here?
01:12:04Yes. Thank you.
01:12:05Mr. Saverin, have you ever done anything
01:12:08that might be considered legitimate grounds for termination?
01:12:14You never did anything to embarrass the company or even seriously jeopardize it?
01:12:19- No. - No?
01:12:25You were accused of animal cruelty.
01:12:29- Wait. - You weren't?
01:12:31This is not happening.
01:12:34I have here an article from The Crimson...
01:12:36Jesus Christ.
01:12:37I can't have this, Wardo.
01:12:38Come on, man. This is bullshit. This is another club playing a prank.
01:12:43I'd gotten into the Phoenix.
01:12:46I'd been accepted, and as part of my initiation I had to,
01:12:48for one week, carry with me at all times and take care of a chicken.
01:12:52They identify you as one of the founders of Facebook.
01:12:55"Junior Eduardo Saverin..."
01:12:57I'm not the expert, but being connected to torturing animals
01:12:59is probably bad for business.
01:13:00I did not torture the chicken. I don't torture chickens. Are you crazy?
01:13:05No, and settle down, please. I have here an article from The Crimson...
01:13:09- This is scathing. - 956.
01:13:11I was having dinner in the Kirkland dining hall with Mark,
01:13:14and I had the chicken with me,
01:13:16because I had to have the chicken with me at all times.
01:13:18This was college.
01:13:19- Somebody's gonna have to answer for this. - 969.
01:13:21And the dining hall was serving chicken for dinner,
01:13:24and I had to feed my chicken, so I...
01:13:26Well, I took little pieces of chicken and I gave it to the chicken.
01:13:30Someone must have seen me, because the next thing I knew
01:13:32I was being accused of forced cannibalism.
01:13:34I didn't know you couldn't do that.
01:13:37I dealt with the various animal rights groups,
01:13:39I dealt with the associate dean of the college.
01:13:42This was all resolved.
01:13:45Someone from the Porc or the Fly must have reported it.
01:13:47For all I know, it was the Winklevosses.
01:13:49All right, let's just forget about it.
01:13:51This is absurd. I'm being accused of animal cruelty.
01:13:54It's better to be accused of necrophilia.
01:13:55It is better to be accused of necrophilia.
01:13:57Now I have to explain this to my father. I'm gonna have to explain this to everybody.
01:14:00What is happening on that?
01:14:02I have my final coming up for Postwar and Contemporary Art
01:14:04and I haven't been to class.
01:14:05I'm supposed to write about these four paintings.
01:14:07That's a Facebook page?
01:14:08Yeah. I opened it under an alias.
01:14:09I posted the paintings and asked people to comment.
01:14:11Every once in a while, I hop on and stir the pot to get a good debate going.
01:14:14Mr. Zuckerberg was cheating on his final exam?
01:14:17- I'd rather not answer that, Gretchen. - And why not?
01:14:19Because I'm not suing him for cheating on his final exam.
01:14:22- That's not what friends do. - Well, you just told us he was cheating.
01:14:30You told your lawyers I was torturing animals?
01:14:32No, he didn't tell us about it at all.
01:14:34Our litigators are capable of finding a Crimson article.
01:14:36In fact, when we raised the subject with him, he defended you.
01:14:43993. We are so close.
01:14:46Yeah, that reminds me, we're gonna need more money, Wardo.
01:14:49Yeah, no, I agree. More servers, more help.
01:14:51I'm interviewing two interns to come to Palo Alto
01:14:53and we're gonna have to pay them something.
01:14:54- Sorry, what? - I already found a house for rent
01:14:56on a street two blocks from the Stanford campus.
01:14:58It is perfect and it's got a pool.
01:14:59When did you decide to go to California for the summer?
01:15:01You mean when did I actually decide?
01:15:03Was it somewhere in the middle of the Sean Parker Variety Hour?
01:15:06He was right, California's the place we've gotta be.
01:15:09What, you're Jed Clampett?
01:15:10I didn't know you guys got The Beverly Hillbillies in Brazil.
01:15:12Yeah, got the show in Brazil, it was genius.
01:15:14- What is your problem with Sean? - He doesn't bring anything to the table.
01:15:17He doesn't have money. Dustin's a better programmer.
01:15:20- He's got connections to VCs. - We don't need VCs, we need advertisers.
01:15:23- And I have connections to VCs. - No real players.
01:15:25And as somebody who's just really embarrassed the company in a bad way...
01:15:28- It was the Winklevosses, Mark. - Hang on.
01:15:30Hit "Refresh."
01:15:36150,000 members, Wardo.
01:15:38- Congratulations, dude. - Congratulations.
01:15:40You don't think it was strange that he was followed by private detectives?
01:15:44Who came up with nothing.
01:15:46Enough to get him out of the company. The drugs, the girls.
01:15:48- We don't know that any of that's true. - You can read about it.
01:15:50I can read about you torturing birds. Since when...
01:15:52Okay, don't fish eat other fish? The marlins and the trout?
01:15:58What's he talking about?
01:15:59I'm interviewing interns at 10:00 tomorrow night in the CS lab.
01:16:02Get on board with this, man.
01:16:03You know, I don't really know what else to say.
01:16:29You can do one more! One more!
01:16:37Yo! Mark!
01:16:41What's going on?
01:16:42They have 10 minutes to get root access to a Python web server,
01:16:44expose its SSL encryption,
01:16:46and then intercept all traffic over its secure port.
01:16:47They're hacking.
01:16:48Yes, all behind a Pix Firewall Emulator. But here's the beauty.
01:16:51You know I didn't understand anything you just said, right?
01:16:52- I do know that. - So what's the beauty?
01:16:54Every tenth line of code written, they have to drink a shot.
01:16:56Hacking's supposed to be stealth, so every time the server detects an intrusion,
01:16:59the candidate responsible has to drink a shot.
01:17:01I also have a program running that has a pop-up window
01:17:02appear simultaneously on all five computers.
01:17:04The last candidate to hit the window has to drink a shot.
01:17:06Plus, every three minutes they all have to drink a shot.
01:17:09- Three minutes! - Drink one now!
01:17:11Hey, can I ask, what part of the intern's job will they need to be able to do drunk?
01:17:15You're right.
01:17:16A more relevant test might be seeing if they can keep a chicken alive for a week.
01:17:21- That was mean. - Here.
01:17:23What is this?
01:17:24I opened a new account and put $18,000 in it.
01:17:29Will that get you through the summer?
01:17:31- Here! - Mark?
01:17:32Right here!
01:17:39Welcome to Facebook.
01:17:50- $18,000? - Yes.
01:17:52In addition to the $1,000 you'd already put up.
01:17:54- Yes. - A total of $19,000 now.
01:17:57- Yes. - Hang on.
01:18:00I'm just checking your math on that.
01:18:02Yes, I got the same thing.
01:18:05May I continue?
01:18:06After expressing misgivings about Mr. Zuckerberg taking the company
01:18:09and moving it to California for the summer,
01:18:11why did you put $18,000 in an account for his use?
01:18:14I figured we were partners. I wanted to be a team player.
01:18:18I figured Mark, Dustin and the new interns could work on the site
01:18:21while I was generating advertiser interest in New York.
01:18:24But mostly I figured, how much could possibly go wrong in three months?
01:18:30Go, go, go, go, go.
01:18:37- I didn't die. - I know.
01:18:38- I made it. - You did.
01:18:42Okay, ready?
01:18:43- That was like an 8. - That was like a 2.
01:18:45- It was better than that. - Yeah.
01:18:56I'm okay.
01:18:58- You sure? - Yeah.
01:19:02That's the doorbell.
01:19:03I didn't know we had a doorbell.
01:19:05- Andrew, get the door! - No, he's wired in.
01:19:07That's gonna cut into your security deposit.
01:19:12- Andrew. - Not now.
01:19:13Good boy.
01:19:18- Sean? - Mark?
01:19:20- Do you live here? - Yeah.
01:19:22Do you?
01:19:23We were right across the street. We saw the chimney...
01:19:25- Is anybody hurt? - No. You live across the street?
01:19:29I'm Sharon.
01:19:30This is my... Sharon. She lives across the street.
01:19:32I was helping her move out, we saw the chimney...
01:19:34We had a zip line to the pool.
01:19:37You came to California.
01:19:41You made the right choice.
01:19:49Here you go.
01:19:58I'm so sorry.
01:19:59- No problem. - I didn't know you were gonna...
01:20:00- Here you go. - No, no, no. Wait!
01:20:04This house and this team are great. It's exactly what it should be.
01:20:08I'm Sean Parker.
01:20:10Oh, he's wired in.
01:20:11That's what I'm talking about.
01:20:15Where's Eduardo?
01:20:16He got an internship in New York.
01:20:19Eduardo didn't come out?
01:20:41I was crashing there for a little bit while I'm taking care of some things,
01:20:44but she's done for the summer so she's back at her parents' place.
01:20:47- The homeless rock star of Palo Alto. - All right.
01:20:51What's your plan for the summer?
01:20:56I'm sorry. I was looking at the architecture.
01:21:00I asked what your plan for the...
01:21:01A hundred schools by the end of the summer.
01:21:03- We're gonna go to the restroom. - Okay.
01:21:05Yeah, I'll go with you.
01:21:10Your date looks so familiar to me.
01:21:12She looks familiar to a lot of people.
01:21:14What do you mean?
01:21:17A Stanford MBA named Roy Raymond wants to buy his wife some lingerie,
01:21:20but he's too embarrassed to shop for it in a department store.
01:21:23He comes up with an idea for a high-end place
01:21:25that doesn't make you feel like a pervert.
01:21:28He gets a $40,000 bank loan, borrows another 40,000 from his in-laws,
01:21:32opens a store and calls it Victoria's Secret.
01:21:35Makes a half million dollars his first year.
01:21:38Starts a catalog, opens three more stores, and after five years, he sells the company
01:21:42to Leslie Wexner and The Limited for $4 million.
01:21:45Happy ending, right?
01:21:47Except two years later, the company's worth $500 million,
01:21:51and Roy Raymond jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge.
01:21:57Poor guy just wanted to buy his wife a pair of thigh-highs, you know?
01:22:02Was that a parable?
01:22:04My date's a Victoria's Secret model. That's why she looks familiar to you.
01:22:08- God. - Don't be impressed by all this.
01:22:10I read your blog.
01:22:11You know, no, that was for web cretins.
01:22:13You know why I started Napster?
01:22:16The girl I loved in high school was with the co-captain of the varsity lacrosse team,
01:22:21and I wanted to take her from him.
01:22:23So I decided to come up with the next big thing.
01:22:25- I didn't know that. - Napster wasn't a failure.
01:22:28I changed the music industry for better and for always.
01:22:31It may not have been good business, but it pissed a lot of people off.
01:22:36And isn't that what your Facemash was about?
01:22:38They're scared of me, pal, and they're gonna be scared of you.
01:22:41What the VCs want is to say,
01:22:43"Good idea, kid, the grown-ups will take it from here."
01:22:46But not this time. This is our time.
01:22:49This time, you're gonna hand them a business card that says,
01:22:52"I'm CEO, bitch."
01:22:55That's what I want for you.
01:22:58So where the hell is Eduardo?
01:23:01- He's in New York. - Sucking up to ad execs.
01:23:03- He's got an... - An internship.
01:23:06The company's here. A billion-dollar company's here.
01:23:11- Do you live and breathe Facebook? - Yes.
01:23:13I know you do.
01:23:14Wardo wants to be a businessman and for all I know he's gonna be a good one,
01:23:17but he shouldn't be in New York kissing Madison Avenue's ass.
01:23:22This is a once-in-a-generation, "holy shit" idea.
01:23:26And the water under the Golden Gate is freezing cold.
01:23:31Look at my face and tell me I don't know what I'm talking about.
01:23:37Do you ever think about that girl?
01:23:38What girl?
01:23:40The girl from high school with the lacrosse thing.
01:23:45If you guys are gonna talk about bandwidth, we need shots.
01:23:49A hundred schools by the end of the summer?
01:23:52Tell you what. Gesture of good faith.
01:23:53While you're getting into 100 schools, I'll put you on two continents.
01:24:04If you don't have a place to crash,
01:24:06I think you should definitely come and live with us.
01:24:09Let's line up some shots.
01:24:11- Excuse me! - Yes, sir.
01:24:13You can take this away and bring back the 1942.
01:24:17Absolutely, Mr. Parker.
01:24:35Attention... Go!
01:24:55At the barrier, Hollandia is leading Harvard University by one length.
01:25:09Approaching the grandstands,
01:25:10Hollandia maintains a lead of three-quarters of a length.
01:25:26Come on!
01:26:13- Mr. Winklevoss. - Tyler.
01:26:15- Tremendous race. - Thank you.
01:26:16- And this is my brother, Cameron. - Excellent.
01:26:20His Royal Highness Prince Albert.
01:26:22Your Highness, this is Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss.
01:26:24Of course. Brilliant race. I've never seen a race that close.
01:26:27Yes, Your Highness.
01:26:28My grandfather, Jack Kelly, was one of the premier rowers of his day.
01:26:31I've been coming to Henley for 30 years and I'd never seen a race that close.
01:26:35Have you? Have you seen a race that close?
01:26:37No, Your Highness.
01:26:38Mile-and-a-half races are more commonly won by a boat length or two.
01:26:40Yes, that's absolutely right. Brutally close.
01:26:43May I introduce my teammates?
01:26:45I'm sorry. You'll have to excuse us.
01:26:47On to the Dutch.
01:26:52Sorry you flew all the way out here to see that.
01:26:53Wouldn't have missed it, brother. How was the royalty?
01:26:56I just wanted him to tell me a couple more times how close the race was.
01:26:58Just brutal, brutally close. Brutally excruciating. Jesus.
01:27:02The guy is the prince of a country the size of Nantucket.
01:27:04Relax, it's fine.
01:27:05- Boys. Divya. - Dad.
01:27:06- Mr. Winklevoss. - That was a tough beat.
01:27:08I'm sorry that you and Mom had to fly out here to see that.
01:27:10No, don't ever apologize to me for losing a race like that.
01:27:13Don't ever apologize to anyone for losing a race like that.
01:27:15- Boys. - Mr. Kenwright.
01:27:18Dad, this is Mr. Kenwright, head of the host family for this week.
01:27:21- Pleasure to meet you. - Good to meet you.
01:27:22I've just had a phone chat with my daughter.
01:27:24She told me that she and her friends are already talking about the race,
01:27:27which they've just seen via their computers.
01:27:29A new website called Facebook. Do you have this in America?
01:27:34I'm gonna find your mother.
01:27:38Have I said something wrong?
01:27:39Your daughter doesn't go to school in the States?
01:27:41No, no. Cambridge.
01:27:43Majoring in French literature, though I wasn't aware there was such a thing.
01:27:46And they have Facebook at Cambridge?
01:27:47And apparently Oxford and the London School of Economics.
01:27:49That's where her friends are.
01:27:51That's awesome.
01:27:53Good race, boys. Take the bitter with the better, eh?
01:27:58I'm gonna go watch the race film.
01:28:03If this is online, I wanna see it.
01:28:05Stop it.
01:28:07Stop it, Cam.
01:28:09Knock it off.
01:28:11I don't mind that we lost to the Dutch today by less than a second.
01:28:14That was a good race, and that was a fair race.
01:28:16And they'll see us again.
01:28:18What I mind, and what you should mind,
01:28:20is showing up on Monday for a race that was run on Sunday.
01:28:24We tried talking to him ourselves, we tried writing a letter,
01:28:26we tried the Ad Board, and we tried talking to the president of the university.
01:28:29Now, I am asking you for the last time,
01:28:32let's take the considerable resources at our disposal and sue him in federal court.
01:28:38Come on.
01:28:40I need a real drink.
01:28:49Screw it.
01:28:52Let's gut the frigging nerd.
01:28:57That's what I'm talking about!
01:28:58No, no, no, no, no.
01:29:00But check it out, I saw him today.
01:29:02Manningham, Mitchell Manningham, my Case Equity guy.
01:29:05Hang on.
01:29:06Are you guys using Spikes or Ghost Missiles?
01:29:08We don't know, we're just shooting at each other.
01:29:10Use Sweet Kamikazes.
01:29:11Like we know what that is.
01:29:14I saw him getting into his Turbo Carrera and he saw me, too.
01:29:18I know he did.
01:29:22Don't. Don't sweat it. I'm on a landline.
01:29:25Bong hit.
01:29:27Does anybody hear that banging?
01:29:28You don't hear anything. You're writing code.
01:29:31Dude, somebody's at the door.
01:29:33It's not a dish best served cold. It's best served immediately and relentlessly.
01:29:41I'm gonna call you back.
01:29:45What's up?
01:29:49Mark was supposed to pick me up at the airport an hour ago.
01:29:51I've been calling his cell.
01:29:53He was on a 36-hour coding tear, so he took a nap for a couple of hours.
01:30:04What happened here?
01:30:05Not happened. Happening. The next big thing.
01:30:10Hey, man.
01:30:11- Back to work. - Okay.
01:30:13The more bad I get at this, the more wasted I get.
01:30:16I mean the more wasted that I get...
01:30:18We understand.
01:30:21How old are they, Sean?
01:30:23It's not polite to ask.
01:30:25Sean, how old are they?
01:30:27You think you know me, right?
01:30:28I've read enough.
01:30:30You know how much I've read about you?
01:30:38- Wardo. - Hey, man.
01:30:40- I waited an hour for you at the airport. - What time is it?
01:30:43It's midnight. Or 3:00 a.m. In New York, where I just came from.
01:30:46You gotta see some of the new stuff we got. Hey, Dustin. Show him the Wall.
01:30:50I'm just calling it the Wall.
01:30:51Forget the Wall, tell him about the meeting I've got set up.
01:30:54You know Peter Thiel?
01:30:55- Nope. - No reason you should.
01:30:57He just runs a $2-billion hedge fund called Clarium Capital.
01:31:02Why's he setting up meetings?
01:31:03Thiel might wanna make an angel investment.
01:31:04I don't care if he's an actual angel. Why is he setting up business meetings?
01:31:08- You've had a long flight. - No, I had a long wait on the tarmac at JFK,
01:31:10then a long wait at the passenger loading and unloading zone at SFO,
01:31:13and in between there was a long flight.
01:31:15I'm the business end of this company.
01:31:17And he is a houseguest living here rent free
01:31:20on a very generous grant from the Eduardo Saverin Foundation.
01:31:23I heard about your big-ticket ad buys. Gary's Tuxedos.
01:31:26- Hey, man... - Harvard Bartending Course.
01:31:28You're just a small step away from bagging Snookies Cookies, I can feel it.
01:31:40- You wanna talk to me alone for a minute? - Sure.
01:31:47Bong hit.
01:31:48- I'm so high. - No, you're not.
01:31:51So how's it going?
01:31:53How's the internship? How's Christy?
01:31:57- How's the internship? - Yeah.
01:32:01Mark, Jesus, I quit the internship.
01:32:03We talked about this on the phone. I quit on my first day.
01:32:07I do remember you saying that.
01:32:09So how is Christy?
01:32:12Christy's crazy.
01:32:14- Is that fun? - No.
01:32:15I mean, she's actually psychotic.
01:32:16She's insanely jealous, she's irrational, and I'm frightened of her.
01:32:22Still, it's nice you have a girlfriend.
01:32:27I do not want that guy representing himself as part of this company.
01:32:31You gotta move out here, Wardo, this is where it's all happening.
01:32:34- Did you hear what I just said? - The connections, the energy...
01:32:36Mark, you got...
01:32:37I'm afraid if you don't come out here, you're gonna get left behind.
01:32:39I want... I need you out here.
01:32:42- Please don't tell him I said that. - What did you just say?
01:32:44It's moving faster than any of us ever imagined it would.
01:32:46- It's moving fast. - What did you mean?
01:32:48- And Sean thinks we have... - Sean is not part of this company.
01:32:50We have over 300,000 members, Wardo,
01:32:51and we're in 160 schools, including five in Europe.
01:32:53I'm aware of that! Mark, I am the CFO!
01:32:55We need more servers than I ever expected we'd need.
01:32:56We need more programmers and we need more money,
01:32:58and he set up the Thiel meeting. He set up meetings all over town.
01:33:01- He set up other meetings? - Yes.
01:33:02- Without me knowing anything about it. - You're in New York.
01:33:04I'm in New York riding subways 14 hours a day, trying to find advertisers!
01:33:08And how's it going so far?
01:33:14What did you mean, "get left behind"?
01:33:21- Hi. - Can I help you?
01:33:23I'd like to freeze this bank account
01:33:24and cancel all existing checks and lines of credit.
01:33:29- May I see some ID, please? - Yeah, sure, sorry.
01:33:39Sean, he'll be right with you.
01:33:40No problem.
01:33:44You know this is where they filmed Towering Inferno?
01:33:46That's comforting.
01:33:49Hey, guys. Come on back.
01:33:52- She offer you some waters? - Oh, yeah. We're cool.
01:33:56Sean, how are you? Come on in.
01:33:57- You must be Mark. - Hi.
01:34:01We took a look at everything, and congratulations.
01:34:05We're gonna start you off with a $500,000 investment.
01:34:09Maurice is gonna talk to you about some corporate restructuring.
01:34:12We'll file as a corporation in Delaware
01:34:14and come up with a stock structure that allows for new investors.
01:34:17Now, let me ask you something.
01:34:20Who's Eduardo Saverin?
01:34:42Jesus Christ.
01:34:47When did you get back?
01:34:48You scared me. I need you to knock.
01:34:50When did you get back?
01:34:53I got back this afternoon.
01:34:55And when were you gonna call me?
01:34:56Chris, it was kind of a rough trip and I was tired...
01:34:59Yeah, or answer one of my 47 texts. Did you know I sent 47 texts?
01:35:03I did, and I thought that was incredibly normal behavior.
01:35:07Are you mocking me?
01:35:09I brought you a present.
01:35:12Why does your Status say "single" on your Facebook page?
01:35:16Why does your Relationship Status say "single" on your Facebook page?
01:35:20Well, I was single when I set up the page.
01:35:21And you just never bothered to change it?
01:35:25I don't know how.
01:35:26Do I look stupid to you?
01:35:28No, calm down.
01:35:30You're asking me to believe that the CFO of Facebook
01:35:32doesn't know how to change his Relationship Status on Facebook?
01:35:34It's embarrassing, so you should take it as a sign of trust that I would tell you that.
01:35:38- Go to hell. - Take it easy.
01:35:39No, you didn't change it so you could screw those Silicon Valley sluts
01:35:42every time you go out to see Mark.
01:35:44Not even remotely true, and I can promise you that the Silicon Valley sluts
01:35:47don't care what anyone's Relationship Status is on Facebook.
01:35:50Please, open your present.
01:35:51Your phone does work.
01:35:54It's Mark.
01:35:55Okay, this is gonna be tricky.
01:35:58Open your present. It's a silk scarf.
01:36:00Have you ever seen me wear a scarf?
01:36:02This'll be your first.
01:36:05- You froze our account? - I did.
01:36:07- You froze the account. - I had to get your attention, Mark.
01:36:09Do you realize that you jeopardized the entire company?
01:36:11Do you realize that your actions could have destroyed
01:36:13everything I've been working on?
01:36:14We have been working on.
01:36:15Without money, the site can't function.
01:36:16Let me tell you the difference between Facebook and everybody else.
01:36:19We don't crash ever!
01:36:20If the servers are down for even a day, our entire reputation is irreversibly destroyed.
01:36:24- Look... - Users are fickle. Friendster has proved that.
01:36:26Even a few people leaving would reverberate through the entire user base.
01:36:29The users are interconnected. That is the whole point.
01:36:31College kids are online because their friends are online
01:36:33and if one domino goes, the other dominos go.
01:36:35Don't you get that?
01:36:36I am not going back to the Caribbean Night at A-E-Pi!
01:36:40Holy shit.
01:36:44What is wrong with you?
01:36:46Did you like being nobody?
01:36:47Did you like being a joke? Do you wanna go back to that?
01:36:49Hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on.
01:36:50That was the act of a child, not a businessman,
01:36:52and it certainly was not the act of a friend.
01:36:53You know how embarrassing it was for me to try to cash a check today?
01:36:56I am not going back to that life.
01:36:57- Maybe you were frustrated. - Yeah!
01:37:00- Maybe you were angry. - I was!
01:37:02But I am willing to let bygones be bygones,
01:37:05because, Wardo, I've got some good news.
01:37:07I'm sorry.
01:37:08I was angry, and maybe it was childish, but I had to get your attention.
01:37:13Wardo, I said I've got some good news.
01:37:17What is it?
01:37:18Peter Thiel just made an angel investment of half a million dollars.
01:37:22Half a million dollars. And he's setting us up in an office.
01:37:26They wanna reincorporate the company. They wanna meet you.
01:37:29They need your signature on some documents,
01:37:31so you gotta get your ass on the first flight back to San Francisco.
01:37:33I need my CFO.
01:37:40I'm on my way.
01:37:41- Wardo? - Yeah?
01:37:42We did it.
01:37:49You're going back there already?
01:37:54And also, I'm breaking up with you.
01:38:00Somebody stop her!
01:38:04Four documents.
01:38:05The first two are common stock purchase agreements,
01:38:07allowing you to buy stock in the newly reincorporated Facebook,
01:38:11as opposed to the old shares, which are now worthless.
01:38:14The third is an exchange agreement
01:38:15allowing you to exchange the old shares for new shares,
01:38:18and then finally a voter holding agreement.
01:38:20How many shares of stock will I own?
01:38:26Jesus Christ.
01:38:27That represents a 34.4% ownership share.
01:38:30Why the increase from the original 30%?
01:38:33'Cause you may need to dilute it to award shares to new investors.
01:38:36- I love working with business majors. - I'm telling you.
01:38:39- Economics. - Right.
01:38:40You should know that Mark has already taken his percentage from 60 down to 51.
01:38:46Well, Mark doesn't care about money and he needs to be protected.
01:38:51Dustin Moskovitz owns 6.81%.
01:38:54Sean Parker, 6.47%.
01:38:59I can live with that.
01:39:00And Peter Thiel, 7%.
01:39:06Would you like to use my pen?
01:39:09Eduardo? Eduardo?
01:39:13Can you please repeat the question?
01:39:15No, it was an outrageously leading question the first time around,
01:39:17and now you want us to hear it twice?
01:39:18Yes. Would you read it back, please?
01:39:20Well, go ahead.
01:39:21"Counsel: 'And when you signed these documents,
01:39:23"'were you aware that you were signing your own death certificate?"'
01:39:31It was insanely stupid of me not to have my own lawyers look over all the...
01:39:36In all honesty, I thought they were my lawyers.
01:39:42I was your only friend.
01:39:45You had one friend.
01:39:52My father won't even look at me.
01:39:53Okay, Eduardo, did Mr. Zuckerberg say anything to you after you signed the papers?
01:39:58There was a lot of handshaking, a lot of congratulations.
01:40:02He'd already told me that he wouldn't be
01:40:04coming back to school for at least a semester,
01:40:07so we were saying goodbye for a while.
01:40:10And then before I left he said...
01:40:12But you gotta come back.
01:40:13Somewhere around the end of November or early December.
01:40:15Peter wants to throw us an amazing party when we hit a million members.
01:40:18It's gonna be out of control. You gotta come back for it.
01:40:20A million members?
01:40:23Remember the algorithm on the window at Kirkland?
01:40:32Yeah, I'll be here.
01:40:38You sure about this?
01:40:39You're 20 minutes late.
01:40:41You're gonna walk in there and say you overslept
01:40:42and didn't have time to get dressed.
01:40:43They're gonna pitch you. Case Equity is going to pitch you.
01:40:46They're gonna beg you to take their money.
01:40:47You're gonna nod, you're gonna nod, you're gonna nod,
01:40:49and then you're gonna say, "Which one of you is Roth?"
01:40:52No, not Roth. Manningham.
01:40:54"Which one of you is Mitchell Manningham?" And he'll say, "I am."
01:40:56And then you say, "Sean Parker says, 'Fuck you."'
01:41:00Walk out.
01:41:15In late November, I got the e-mail from Mark
01:41:18telling me to come out for the millionth-member party.
01:41:20What else did the e-mail say?
01:41:21It said that we had to have a business meeting.
01:41:24That Mark and Sean had played some kind of revenge stunt on Case Equity,
01:41:28and that Manningham was so impressed
01:41:30that he was now making an investment offer that was hard to turn down.
01:41:34So I went to California, and I went straight to the new offices.
01:41:38I didn't know whether to dress for the party or for the business meeting,
01:41:42so I kind of dressed for both.
01:41:45- But it didn't matter. - Why not?
01:41:47Because I wasn't called out there for either one.
01:41:50What were you called out there for?
01:41:55An ambush.
01:41:57Mr. Saverin. Hey. Right over here.
01:42:06Hey, man.
01:42:07- How are you? - Good. How are you?
01:42:08- Good, good, good, good, good. - Good to see you.
01:42:11At first I thought he was joking. Giving me more contracts to sign.
01:42:19But then I started reading.
01:42:24Wait, what is this?
01:42:26Well, as you know, we had some new investors that have come in.
01:42:29What is this?
01:42:43Mr. Saverin.
01:42:49- Mark? - He's wired in.
01:42:51- Sorry? - He's wired in.
01:42:52- Is he? - Yes.
01:42:55- How about now? Are you still wired in? - Call security.
01:42:58You issued 24 million new shares of stock!
01:43:01You were told that if new investors came along...
01:43:02How much were your shares diluted? How much were his?
01:43:06What was Mr. Zuckerberg's ownership share diluted down to?
01:43:10It wasn't.
01:43:11What was Mr. Moskovitz's ownership share diluted down to?
01:43:15It wasn't.
01:43:16What was Sean Parker's ownership share diluted down to?
01:43:19It wasn't.
01:43:20What was Peter Thiel's ownership share diluted down to?
01:43:23It wasn't.
01:43:24And what was your ownership share diluted down to?
01:43:39- You signed the papers. - You set me up.
01:43:41You're gonna blame me because you were the business head of the company,
01:43:44and you made a bad business deal with your own company?
01:43:46It's gonna be like I'm not a part of Facebook.
01:43:47It won't be like you're not a part of Facebook.
01:43:49You're not a part of Facebook.
01:43:50- My name's on the masthead. - You might wanna check again.
01:43:52This because I froze the account?
01:43:54You think we'd let you parade around in your ridiculous suits,
01:43:56pretending you were running this company?
01:43:57Sorry, my Prada's at the cleaner's!
01:43:59Along with my hoodie and my fuck-you flip-flops, you pretentious douchebag!
01:44:04Security's here. You'll be leaving now.
01:44:06- I'm not signing those papers. - We will get the signature.
01:44:09Tell me this isn't about me getting into the Phoenix.
01:44:13You... You did it. I knew you did it. You planted that story about the chicken!
01:44:18- I didn't plant that story. - What's he talking about?
01:44:20- You had me accused of animal cruelty. - Seriously. What the hell's the chicken?
01:44:23And I'll bet what you hated the most
01:44:25is that they identified me as a co-founder of Facebook.
01:44:29Which I am. You better lawyer up, asshole.
01:44:32'Cause I'm not coming back for 30%. I'm coming back for everything.
01:44:43- Get him out of here. - It's okay, I'm going.
01:44:48Hang on.
01:44:51Almost forgot.
01:44:54Here's your $19,000. I wouldn't cash it, though.
01:44:56I drew it on the account you froze.
01:45:03I like standing next to you, Sean.
01:45:07It makes me look so tough.
01:45:24That's it, that's our show for tonight, people.
01:45:27And look, I wanna see everyone here geared up for a party.
01:45:29We're gonna walk into that club like it's the Macy's Parade.
01:45:31Mackey, put it up on the big screen. We've gotta almost be there.
01:45:38- You all right? - Yeah.
01:45:41You were kind of rough on him.
01:45:42That's life in the NFL.
01:45:45You know you didn't have to be that rough on him.
01:45:46- Listen, I put him... - Sean!
01:45:50You didn't have to be that rough on him.
01:45:52He almost killed it.
01:45:56I'll send flowers.
01:45:59Speaking of flowers, I'm putting together a party after the party at Kappa Eta Sigma.
01:46:04Ashleigh's a sister.
01:46:05- Ashleigh? - The intern.
01:46:07Yeah. I know who she is. Are you guys...
01:46:10Ashleigh? Me? No.
01:46:12Well, a little bit.
01:46:16- No. Nothing, I just... - Excuse me. Mark?
01:46:17- We were just talking about you. - Just that you're doing a really good job.
01:46:21Thanks. I appreciate that.
01:46:25These came in for you.
01:46:26Put them on my desk.
01:46:34What's the package?
01:46:40- Mackey. - Yes, sir.
01:46:51And you're not a hugger.
01:46:53I know.
01:46:57One million!
01:47:00Who's got champagne? Huh?
01:47:04I've got champagne.
01:47:26The next transformative development, a picture-sharing application.
01:47:30A place where you view pictures that coincide with your social life.
01:47:33It is the true digitalization of real life.
01:47:36- You can use a CD. - You can do it off of me.
01:47:38You don't just go to a party anymore.
01:47:40You go to a party with a digital camera, and then your friends relive the party online.
01:47:44And tagging. The idea...
01:47:45- Would this be easier without the bra? - It's worth finding out.
01:47:56All right, shut the music down!
01:47:59The party's over!
01:48:01Everybody, go home!
01:48:03I've spent hours watching what people do when they log on.
01:48:06How they check their friends' status updates.
01:48:07Wait. That's weird. Why did the music stop?
01:48:09Check to see which one of their friends
01:48:10changed their profiles, changed their photos...
01:48:12Seriously, what happened to the music?
01:48:14We lived on farms and then we lived in cities,
01:48:16and now we're going to live on the Internet!
01:48:18Sean, stop. I think something's going on downstairs.
01:48:30Ladies and gentlemen, can I have your attention, please?
01:48:33It's time for you to go home. The party is over.
01:48:37Then it's all good.
01:48:41- It's the cops. - What?
01:48:42Shit! Shit.
01:48:43- Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit. - Okay, it's okay. Be cool.
01:48:47Good to see you, Officer. What can I do for you?
01:48:50What's going on?
01:48:52Was the music too loud? We were having a celebration.
01:48:54Miss, I need you to button your blouse.
01:48:56I can tell them to turn the music down.
01:49:03That's not mine.
01:49:04Okay, we're gonna need identification. Keep your hands where we can see them.
01:49:07Oh, my God.
01:49:09You got anything else in your pockets I should know about?
01:49:10No, sir. No.
01:49:12- Don't be stupid, now. - I don't, I don't.
01:49:19What's this?
01:49:21That's an EpiPen.
01:49:23- And this? - That's my inhaler.
01:49:27How old are you?
01:49:32- Twenty-one. - I'm 21.
01:49:33Lying only makes it worse.
01:49:36I'm sorry, I shouldn't have lied.
01:49:51Listen, something's happened.
01:50:02No, it's all right. It's gonna be all right.
01:50:04I posted bond, and I wasn't doing anything. I mean, I've got allergies.
01:50:14It was just a party.
01:50:19This is gonna be news, Sean. It's gonna be online any second.
01:50:23I know.
01:50:24You know with an intern...
01:50:26No, it's cool. I have it under control.
01:50:28I will get it under control.
01:50:30I will call someone and see what the next move is.
01:50:32But this is gonna be news now.
01:50:35You don't think Wardo was involved, do you?
01:50:37I mean, do you think...
01:50:40Or Manningham. One of them.
01:50:42Somebody. Somebody sent the coke in there, because it got in there.
01:50:45You believe me. God, this is gonna be fine.
01:50:56Go home, Sean.
01:51:19We're done for the day.
01:51:21Yeah. Yeah, I was just sitting here.
01:51:27What happened to Sean?
01:51:29He still owns 7% of the company.
01:51:36All you had all day was that salad. Do you wanna get something to eat?
01:51:40I can't.
01:51:49I'm not a bad guy.
01:51:51I know that.
01:51:52When there's emotional testimony, I assume 85% of it is exaggeration.
01:51:56And the other 15?
01:51:58Perjury. Creation myths need a devil.
01:52:04What happens now?
01:52:07Sy and the others are having a steak on University Avenue.
01:52:12Then they'll come back up to the office,
01:52:13and start working on a settlement agreement to present to you.
01:52:17- They're gonna settle? - Oh, yeah.
01:52:19- And you're gonna have to pay a little extra. - Why?
01:52:22So that these guys sign a nondisclosure agreement.
01:52:24They say one unflattering word about you in public, you own their wife and kids.
01:52:27I invented Facebook.
01:52:29I'm talking about a jury.
01:52:31I specialize in voir dire, jury selection.
01:52:34What a jury sees when they look at a defendant.
01:52:36Clothes, hair, speaking style, likeability...
01:52:40I've been licensed to practice law for all of 20 months,
01:52:43and I could get a jury to believe
01:52:44that you planted the story about Eduardo and the chicken.
01:52:47Watch what else.
01:52:49Why weren't you at Sean's sorority party that night?
01:52:52- You think I'm the one that called the police? - Doesn't matter.
01:52:54I asked the question, now everybody's thinking about it.
01:52:56You've lost your jury in the first 10 minutes.
01:53:00Farm animals.
01:53:03I was drunk and angry and stupid.
01:53:06- And blogging... - And blogging.
01:53:09Pay them.
01:53:11In the scheme of things,
01:53:13it's a speeding ticket.
01:53:16That's what Sy will tell you tomorrow.
01:53:18Do you think anybody would mind if I stayed and used the computer for a minute?
01:53:21I can't imagine it would be a problem.
01:53:25I appreciate your help today.
01:53:31You're not an asshole, Mark.
01:53:35You're just trying so hard to be.
01:54:23 Baby, your a rich man  "Baby, You're A Rich Man by The BEATLES"
