Ego or quiet confidence?

I saw The Social Network at an industry screening last night.

Have to say I enjoyed it immensely.

One of the key figures in the film is Sean Parker the creator of Napster played by Justin Timberlake.

Parker is portrayed as a guy who takes great pleasure in thumbing his nose at authority.

Mark Zuckerberg succumbs to his charm and ends up creating his business card from a comment by Parker.

According to myth and legend Zuckerberg's card stated I'm the CEO, bitch.

Ya gotta love that kind of ego and attitude.

But I still think I'd settle for the simple straight talking card favoured by Steve Jobs way back in 1979.
