Mark Zuckerberg spoke at a startup conference this weekend, and while much of his talk was about Facebook’s growth and business-y stuff, he did weigh in on The Social Network. And he seemed pretty chill about it, even though he said the filmmakers got one major theme completely wrong: “They just can’t wrap their head around [the idea] that someone might build something because they like building things.”

Still, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher got some parts exactly right, Zuckerberg said. “Every single shirt or fleece is actually a shirt or fleece that I own.” The Facebook chatter starts at about 6:30, but the rest of the talk is pretty interesting, if you’re into entrepreneurship and stuff.
No dig on Jesse Eisenberg or his awesome performance in The Social Net, but: Based on this clip, isn’t Andy Samberg a better Zuck?
