EXT. AUDITORIUM - NIGHT
And it was a clear day, And I was up in
my Radcliffe dorm. And he brought that up
there and said, "Look, it's going to
happen without us. We've got to do it
now." And so I said..."Okay."
He gets an appreciative LAUGH from the STUDENTS.
Now the startingâ€¢of this industry was
very humble indeed. The kit computer on
the cover-of that magazine--
We HEAR a little muffled giggling coming from the row behind
MARK and EDUARDO, MARK is too into the speech to notice but
the giggling registers as a slight annoyance on EDUARDO's
--had an 8080 processor in it, and you
had to assemble it yourself and it came
with 256K of memory.
EDUARDO hears the giggling again and turns around.
In the row behind them and a few seats over are two beautiful
Asian students.--ALICE and JENNY. They're a little overly made-
up for a lecture. JENNY, the one sitting closest to EDUARDO,
is wearing a short skirt with a white shirt: open one button
too far down the front and we can see a hint of the red bra
she's wearing underneath.
She leans forward and whispers to EDUARDO--
Your friend--isn't that Mark Zuckerberg?
You know Mark?
Didn't he make theFacebook?
EDUARDO smiles a little ...this has just never happened--
Yeah. Both of us. It's mine and his. It's
Way cool. I'm Jenny. This is Alice.
EDUARDO can't help noticing--just because it's in his line of
sight--that down the row from the girls, someone else is
pointing at them and whispering to a friend.
Then back to the girls--
Very nice to meet you.
Facebook me when you get home. Maybe we
can all go out for a drink later.
Certainly. I'll certainly--absolutely I
will do that.
EDUARDO turns back to the speaker, who MARK hasn't taken his
eyes off of--
There were a set of machines that came
after that. The TRS-80, Apple II,
As the CROWD from the lecture spills out onto the snowy quad.
EDUARDO--always in his suit-.-is buttoning up his overcoat as
he walks and MARK zips up his hoodie.
She said "Facebook me" and we can all
have a drink later. Which is stunningly
great for two reasons. One, she said
"Facebook me". Right? And the other is
that, you know--
They want to have drinks later.
Yes: Have you ever heard so many
different good things packed into one
A group of guys hustle up to MARK and EDUARDO--
Excuse me. Mark?
I'm Stuart Singer. I'm in your O.S. lab.
Awesome job with theFacebook.
How you doin'.
You know, I could swear he was looking at
you when he said the next Bill Gates
could be right in this room.
I doubt it.
I showed up late, I don't even know who
It was Bill Gates.
Oh shit, that makes sense.
As MARK and EDUARDO walk on, we leave STUART, VIKRAM and BOB in
the background---with STUART and VIKRAM admonishing BOB with--
Are you a moron?/Are you medically
stupid?/You can't recognize Bill Gates
when he's standing in front of you for an
hour?/Mark Zuckerberg now thinks we got
into Harvard on a dimwit scholarship./I'm
gonna get a Glock 39 and I'm going to
kill you./I'm actually going to kill
INT. MARK'S DORM ROOM - NIGHT
As the door opens and MARK and EDUARDO come into the
overheated warmth of the room.
It's time to monetize the thing.
Those Asian girls were cute. What were
Did you hear what I said?
I said it's time to monetize the site.
What does that mean?
I mean it's time for the website to
No I know what the word means. I'm asking
how do you want to do it?
No. What were their names?
We've got 4000 members.
'Cause theFacebook is cool. If we start
installing pop-ups for Mountain Dew it's
Well I wasn't thinking it would be
Mountain Dew but at some point--and I'm
speaking as the business end of the
