As a wanna be Net Entrepreneur, (almost made it a few times and still “fighting the fight”,) I have to say the new movie..no.. Film, about the beginnings of Facebook is…. absolutely fantastic.

Kudos to Justin Timberlake who effortlessly portrays Sean Parker, the Gadfly creator and leeach who created Napster, I do not mean to deny the pivotal role Sean played in the “sparking” of Mark Zuckerberg, getting him out of the dull and boorish Harvard, and out to the silicon valley Heaven, I just mean Justin Timberlake made “Seedy opportunist” look easy.
