Movie: The Social Network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I am also inspired by this movie.

The Social Network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Since its release, The Social Network has been cited as inspiring involvement in start-ups and social media. Bob Lefsetz has stated that: “[w]atching this movie makes you want to run from the theatre, grab your laptop and build your own empire,”noting that The Social Network has helped fuel an emerging perception that “techies have become the new rock stars.”This has led Dave Knox to comment that: “[f]ifteen years from now we might just look back and realize this movie inspired our next great generation of entrepreneurs.”After seeing the movie, Zuckerberg was quoted as saying he is "interested to see what effect The Social Network has on entrepreneurship", noting that he gets "lots of messages from people who claim that they have been very much inspired... to start their own company." Saverin echoed these sentiments, stating that the film may inspire "countless others to create and take that leap to start a new business." In one such instance, the co-founders of Wall Street Magnate confirmed that they were inspired to create the fantasy trading community after watching The Social Network.
