The Real Eduardo Slaverin

Here’s what Eduardo Slaverin (played by Andrew Garfield) had to say after watching ‘The Social Network’:

“What I gleaned from viewing “The Social Network” was bigger and more important than whether the scenes and details included in the script were accurate. After all, the movie was clearly intended to be entertainment and not a fact-based documentary. What struck me most was not what happened – and what did not – and who said what to whom and why. The true takeaway for me was that entrepreneurship and creativity, however complicated, difficult or tortured to execute, are perhaps the most important drivers of business today and the growth of our economy. … While watching the “Hollywood version” of one’s college life is both humbling and entertaining, I hope that this film inspires countless others to create and take that leap to start a new business. With a little luck, you might even change the world.”

One response to “The Real Eduardo Slaverin

  1. That’s an extremely diplomatic response to the movie – and very mature. While I also hope it inspires people to creativity, I hope it warns them of the potential destruction of relationships (and at what cost).
    While I agree that “entrepreneurship and creativity… are perhaps the most important drivers of business today and the growth of our economy.” they are not the most common. More often it’s greed and selfishness IMO.
