Larry Summers Will Not Apologize For Being A Dick To The Winklevoss Twins

Those of you who’ve seen The Social Network know there is a scene in which Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss (AKA The Winklevi) go to Larry Summers, the then president of Harvard, to complain that Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for Facebook. In the movie, Summers is portrayed as a bit of a dick, essentially telling the Winks to fuck off and go waste someone else’s time. Was the portrayal accurate, Summers was asked this morning? Hell yeah it was. And you want to know another thing? Big Lar doesn’t regret for one second telling those little shits to get out of his office.

    I wasn’t like every other rich kid, you know, who dreams about being a professional polo player, I was always more interested in claiming full rights to ideas that are not actually mine. Steve Jobs is a real hero of mine. Larry Ellison. Larry Ellsion would be another person who’s a hero. The company he’s created over the years, I don’t really know anything about it, but the fact that he’s making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know how Zuckerberg snatched the idea from us? No. Do I know the complex algorithms that he used in development? No. Do I know what I’m doing today? No. But my dad got us in here, and I’m gonna give it my best shot.

    Zuckerberg is the rat. What a loser… the un-coolest kind in the “wants it to be cool” we are all screwed.
    BAN Social Networks.

  3. Gajonka says:

    Should be “the un-coolest KID in the world”

    “Using my advanced understanding of game theory, I quickly understood that Harvard could not lose – either way, we were going to get our donations. In fact, I quickly concluded that Zuckerberg, being massively obnoxious, would take heat off of me”. –

    Larry Summers, new head of the Zuckerberg Center for Women in Science and Mathematics

      more like Zuckerberg Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too,…. harvard needs one of those.

    It’s ‘Winkelvae’, bud

    /guy who took too much Latin

    • Villa est villa romana says:

      Winklevae would be first declension plural, reserved for nouns that are typically feminine or some exceptions in the case of some occupations or titles. Therefore, Winklevi, 2nd delc/M would likely be the best bet in the nominative case, bud.

      Unless of course you’re analysis is more along the lines Winklevagina, which is a conversation we can have separately…

      – guy who clearly studied harder than you in Latin

  6. Savage Manatee says:

    They all suck.

  7. One would think that if the Winklevoss brothers had created Facebook, they would have… created Facebook.

  8. One would think that if the Winklevoss brothers had created Facebook, they would have… created Facebook.

    Complaining to the University President appears at number 103 on my list of things to do in that situation.

  10. Guest says:

    Too bad for the Winkle-twins this didn’t happen at “The U”. I think Big Lar’s fellow Clinton Admin loser Donna Shalalalala would have been a lot more understanding and sympathetic.

  11. DinkleVase says:

    That little prick stole our idea of being original. We got this great idea of a social network that you needed an invite to join in on…you know like Friendster.

  12. Dead_Cat says:

    I thought Zuckerberg came out of the movie pretty well, compared to what everyone else says about him. Another case of billionaire entrepreneur is (shockingly) not necessarily a nice person. But at least in this case he’s portrayed as a genius, as opposed to most of the other internet yahoos that everyone assumes just got lucky. I can see MZ crying all the way back to his massive house full of every pleasure money can buy (which is all of them).

  13. Alex Presidio says:

    nothing better than whining recruits who can’t even deliver medals / titles.

  14. Dain bramaged says:

    How about getting Zuckerberg to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement or putting something in writing before giving your idea away to a total stranger who has his fun hacking into computers and mainframes? Smart kids my @ss!

    – Guy who doesn’t know what a mainframe is, but thinks it sounded right.

      It all started when DAVID was logged in to the Harvard website, where I was listening in to the conversations of the Harvard students. One of these students was Mark Zuckerberg who was talking about Face Smash and he had just broken up with his girlfriend at the time, so I struck up a conversation with this Mark Zuckerberg. He was talking about creating a dating site. I thought this was a bit odd – a pie in the sky idea since he had just broken up with his girlfriend and he was slaging her off – calling her a bitch and a whore.
      dave talked to Mark about the idea, and suggested he call it Face Mash. He was intrigued with my suggestion and thought it was a good idea. Mark wanted to call it Face Smash, because he wanted to smash his ex in the face. I convinced him that Face Mash was a good idea and he agreed, but one week later he changed his mind and wanted to call it Face Smash. When I queried him about this he replied ‘f…. off you c…- I’m calling it Face Smash’. Two weeks after this conversation he came up with the name Mashable and when I asked him why he chose the word Mashable instead of Face Mash he said ‘f,…off you bastard, Face mash is not your idea’. So I re-posted the conversations we had two weeks earlier and he had to apologize and said he was going with Mashable. I took this as a sign that he wanted to throw me off the scent and take the site for himself. dave found the character of Mark Zuckerberg to be deceptive and dishonest and ended conversing with Mark Zuckerberg because of his dishonesty and lack of integrity


      The site was created by Zuckerberg (facemash )over the last week in October, after zuck stole the idea. The website used photos compiled from the online facebooks of nine Houses, placing two next to each other at a time and asking users to choose the “hotter” person. Students were ranked within the general Harvard community and individual Houses according to attractiveness. Zuckerberg hacked into House websites to gather the photos, and then wrote the codes to compute rankings after every vote.

      The programming and algorithms that made the site function were Zuckerberg’s primary interest in slaging of his girlfriend ;I think we overcredit Z with a grand scheme, when in reality the idea he stole Facebook was to get girls ; zucerberg is not a great genius just a thief


      After this dave started conversing with Dustin and Chris about an idea of mine called Facebook for an online service where students can post pictures and information on themselves and use it as a directory. They were very intrigued by my idea and wanted to know more.
      dave told them that in the beginning, it would be an online service just for Harvard students, and then spreading through the other campuses in America, joining them up together. The idea was to make it easy for people to connect with other university students so they could get an idea of what other campuses were like, and even eventually spreading through the general public, giving them an idea of what was on offer at the different campuses.
      Dustin and Chris were very intrigued with my idea and said they wanted to be on board. but zuck was there roommate and wonted to be on board zuckerberg was apologetic about face-mash but it was bull shit
      dave talked extensively about my ideas of Facebook and went into great detail of how to get it set up and started. They queried about the finance of setting it up and I told them I was in contact with Tony Robbins, who was interested by the idea and we were having discussions regarding his financial backing of the project


      So we needed a platform dave made contact with paul ceglia and was in discussion about a platform for my idea the facebook
      but zuckerberg made contact to paul ceglia to steal the idea facebook ‘paul ceglia had no legal right to sell the the platform to mark zuckerberg but zuckerberg new what he was doing when he sign the contract
      (paul ceglia had no legal right to sell the the platform to mark zuckerberg } the contract was to David not zuckerberg


      dave then found another contact at Harvard, called Eduardo Saverin and invited him to join me in developing my idea, and also to find out what was going on between Dustin, Chris and Mark . eduardo offered finance to get facebook up and running but zuckerberg spent the money on him self selfish prick zuck spent eduardo saverin money and spat in his face your best friend .this is the reason how eduardo got a invitation into facebook

      THEN david got e-mails from zuckerberg saying he was not interested in the idea facebook david then contacted dustin chris to find out about this email i got from zuckerberg; they went into denial about this. but later on got a email from chris saying they were not interested in the idea facebook


      So dave found a site at Harvard called Harvard Connect (later, in 2004 changed to Harvard Connect To You) run by Cameron and Taylor Winklevoss, and dave explained everything about Facebook and the dealings with Zuckerberg, Dustin and Chris and how dave believed that Zuckerberg was in the process of stealing david idea, and dave asked if the Winklevosses were interested in running Facebook on the Harvard site

      They expressed enthusiasm in the offer and liked the idea of running the site as they liked the concept of Facebook.They told me that they were going to change their site name and redesign it at that time (to Harvard Connect To You The person they called in to help them
      redesign their site was Mark Zuckerberg who then stole their platform : I told them that zuckerberg was a crook the winklevoss where to dumb and dupe by zuckerberg And what do the winklevoss remind me off; its two building and the two buildings were the TWIN TOWERS you guys talk about the truth like you own the truth but you do not and never will

      the winklevoss contacted summers at UV about zuckerberg but summers new the full story of how zuckerberg stole facebook and it was david idea
      david then log a complaint to the FBI about this stolen fake connect 2u account with fake information and about mark zuckerberg


      it did not take long for david to realize that the winklevoss were not up to do the job when cameron found out that david log a complaint to the fbi on zuckerberg cameron sed that is not the way we do things but tyler wonted to file a lawsuit on zuckerberg but cameron was the dominant personality and the hole idea facebook was on the verge of collapse david then got emails from the winklevoss saying they were now longer interested in the idea facebook( NOT A SURPRISE
      DAVID found out later on that the winklevoss contacted WAYNE CHANG and sold 50% of the idea facebook my god how dumb can you get .all the winklevoss had to do was go hire a team of programmers or learn to program on their own .and the idea facebook was a sound and solid idea and the right skillful execution of the idea was all that was needed this was david skill.


      zuckerberg then went on to create a FAKE CONNECT 2U account filled with FAKE information from the stolen platform he stole from the winklevoss Dave got a email from this FAKE CONNECT 2U account . but dave new it was FAKE it was zuckerberg .
      zuckerber wonted more info and idea to steal so dave gave one idea and it was to put a silver layer around the F word on facebook to see if zuckerberg was going to steal this idea and yes he did


      the idea facebook the name facebook the concept and the execution of facebook
      david understands that zuckerberg has a mental personality disorder but this is no excuse for being a asshole and a thief zuckerberg
      you see zuck dustin and chris new that facebook was a billion dollar idea but you stole the idea facebook . chris you may have step up about being gay but you need to step up and tell the truth about how zuckerberg stole facebook


      yes zuckerberg got a girlfriend and no he did not get her from GRAIGS-LIST . but he did break up with his girlfriend and look for love on graigs-list or as zuckerberg put it looking for a new bitch .zuck did not realize that you had to pay for the girls on graigs-list .zuck sad what do you mean you have to pay you pay and if you are unlucky you have to pay twice when you have go to the clinic ; zuckerberg saw every thing as a possession some thing to take when he stole the idea facebook and his girlfriend ; zuckerberg social skills are that poor zuck can not pick up sand if he was standing in the middle of a desert and had to go back to his old girlfriend that is all he had ; facemash and facebook was zuckerberg quest to understand woman FAIL

      zuckerberg do not use your girlfriend to polish your bull-shit it will not work and never will


      friend-star it failed end of story : my-space was a good idea but failed to mash the idea with the changing social landscape
      sean parker seam to think the only reason we won was because of the gross incompetence of myspace systematically over a period of many years
      my god sean parker grow up you do not have your finger on the pulse of social change that just your but-hole


      chris you may have step up about being gay but you need to step up and be a man tell the truth about how zuckerberg stole facebook; and sorry for
      telling zuck & dustin that you were gay back in the year 2003 .zuckerberg ask david if he was safe around chris when zuck found out that chris was gay chris do-not call your self a HERO tell the truth about facebook then you can call your self a HERO !! david contacted freedom to marry in order to contact chris ; the person david contacted at freedom to marry was Sean Eldridge. sean was given all the info on how zuckerberg stole facebook and agreed to contact chris hughes ;but Sean Eldridge lost his objective trip up and stuck his dick up chris hughes bum-hole and the relationship was borne : Chris Hughes just wanted to do something good with his billions. partner Sean Eldridge just wanted to spend his good billions so who is sewing who in this relationship; Chris will you name the person who motivated you to work for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign but you can-not ‘you stole from this person
      SEAN ELDRIDGE asked david for a job at facebook (NO) so went for the next best thing chris hughes

      AARON GREENSPAN the word-smith

      david then went to Aaron Greenspan who was running house systems at Harvard and asked him (under an email non disclosure agreement) to run Facebook on his site which he agreed to do. aaron greenspan used the (info) to extort financal money out of facebook and zuckerberg paid the extortion money and dave call it extortion U see zuckerberg new aaron greenspan new zuck had stolen the idea facebook .I sent all the emails copy to aaron greenspan:{ aaron sold him self off like a hooker standing on a street corner } and what was that quotation aaron that quotation you set me about honour and truth you now the same bullshit the winklevoss are bullshiting on about
      Aaron J. Greenspan says that while he was a student at Harvard, he came up with the idea for Facebook, the social-networking Web site
      An e-mail message, circulated widely by Mr. Greenspan to Harvard students on Sept. 19, 2003, describes the newest feature of houseSYSTEM, as “the Face Book,” an online system for quickly locating other students. The date was four months before Mr. Zuckerberg started his own site, originally “” Greenspan retained his college e-mail messages and provided The New York Times with copies of his communications with)zuckerberg , mark zuckerberg did not dispute the chronology of events or the authenticity of Mr. Greenspan’s e-mail messages. NOT A SURPRISE


      david kirkpatrick was given all the emails and was made fully aware of how zuckerberg stole facebook from david in the beginning david gave kirkpatrick 80% of the emails kirkpatrick then ask if there was more ‘ yes there is more but ask kirkpatrick that he must reveal the truth the other 20% was email from paul ceglia to me dave made contact with paul ceglia and was in discussion about a platform for my idea the facebook
      as for kirkpatrick you are a prick kirkpatrick falls victim to the bane of many business historians infatuation with the subject and the money just a porn-star. Kirkpatrick, if you could stop swinging from Zuck’s nut-sack for a just a minute maybe you’d realize what a suck-up you really are


      ben mezrick was given copes of the emails in and around 2004 dave posted a copy of the emails to ben mezrick and to david kirkpatrick as for kirkpatrick your book is a joke and so are you :
      you are just a fence jumper david kirkpatrick and its chris that is the gay one you dick ‘you sold yourself out you were given the full story of how zuckerberg stole facebook; and sold out
      in a email to eduardo i told him to get a lawyer zuckerberg was going to screw him over and told him to contact ben mezrick
      eduardo told me he had a lawyer he can trust but zuckerberg and the lawyer screwed him over; david made contact to ben and ben mezrick got
      80% of the emails about how zuck stole facebook and about the winklevoss and that facebook was davids idea


      And what are you going to do zuckerberg when paul ceglia wins you can call the contract a fake a counterfeit ; you cant can you zuckerberg Yes you did sign a contract zuckerberg In a email zuckerberg called paul ceglia a dum sucker in 2003 i david posted a copy on to the internet and the
      roomer spread years a go that zuckerberg had sign the contract and yes the abc news room have a copy of the email


      So zuckerberg what are your options zuck i suppose you can tell the truth you see paul cegia had no legal right to sell you the platform
      david was in contact to paul cealia about a platform suitable for facebook but you wonted to steal facebook by stealth and you will have to tell
      your mother and farther and sisters how you stole the idea facebook


      You can’t gift your way out of controversy zucerberg Generosity is not always well-received and what is your true nature bill gates now your true
      nature a trojan horse, africa will rise with out your money and the money you gifted zuck is from a stolen idea ;BILL GATES do not bet against
      DAVID ON THIS the last time you bet against david you lost REMEMBER and you now the truth about mark zuckerberg
