When asked yesterday at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference whether the infamous scene in ‘The Social Network’ where he dismisses the Winklevosses’ claim that Mark Zuckerberg broke the Harvard Code of Conduct is true to life, former Harvard president Larry Summers responded glibly …
“One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o’clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they’re looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an asshole. This was the latter case.”
Today the Winklevosses have snapped back with a letter to current Harvard president Drew Faust condemning Summers’ behavior (embedded below). And now I know what “promulgate” means.
