Is it possible to say that a 27-year old billionaire inspires you? I’ve just updated my Facebook profile (well, it’s something to do late on a Thursday night!) and added Mark Zuckerberg as someone I personally find inspirational. Now I admit that the movie version of his life, The Social Network and the real-life geek are practically inseparable in my head and since I don’t know Mark personally, I’ll stick with Jesse’s portrayal. He’s inspirational because he may well have had he audacity to steal someone else’s idea and make a fortune in the process. He’s inspirational because he doesn’t seem to give a damn whether anyone likes him or not (the Jesse version that is): he’s arrogant, narcissistic, a chronic over-achiever and not remotely likeable in any way. And he’s inspirational because 500 million users can’t be wrong!
