And the Winners of Social Network T-Shirts Are…


We mobilized a pretty decent sized group to see the much-talked-about movie The Social Network last night. It was a thoroughly entertaining film with an iHub-appropriate bent: Set on the Harvard campus in the early 2000s, it documents (undoubtedly more dramatically than in reality) the story of Mark Zuckerberg and the invention of Facebook. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, it’s here.

From conversations afterward, it’s clear that the film prompted many of us to want to read more about what became of the characters in real life. In addition to the enigmatic Mark Zuckerberg, Napster co-founder Sean Parker (famous for his genius and for his hard partying) also makes an appearance, played by Justin Timberlake.

Back at the *iHub_ today we did a drawing for the t-shirts given to iHub by Fox Theatres. And the lucky winners are…

– Charles Kithika
– James Muriithi
– Vincenzo Cavallo (Vincenzo — Tosh has your t-shirt and, he says, your green member badge)

Thanks to all who came out for our movie night. Stay tuned to the iHub blog for new postings about outings and chances to hang out with your fellow iHub’ers away from our laptops.
