Billionaire in a hoodie

Apparently Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has been criticized for showing up at an important business meeting wearing a hoodie. The L-dotters comment. As a person who is Facebook-challenged (I simply do not “get” Facebook, though I hear that a major part of the world’s population now use it), I enjoy reading the L-dotters’ humorous put-downs of it and of Zuckerberg.

By the way, the 2010 movie The Social Network, about Zuckerberg and how Facebook got started, is well worth seeing. It has a highly original screenplay, written, astonishingly, by Aaron Sorkin, most of whose work has been characterized by plodding liberal pieties. In particular, there is a scene early in the movie, in which the Zuckerberg character speaks in a long rapid monologue to other characters, that brilliantly captures a distinct contemporary type: someone who is very bright but has no moral center.
