The real Larry Summers called the film’s portrayal of his meeting with the Winkelvoss twins “fairly accurate”. He went on to say “I’ve heard it said that I can be arrogant. If that’s true, I surely was on that occasion. 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.

And I’m five years ago and three thousand miles away.
Half the harm that is done in this word
Is due to people who want to feel important.
They don’t mean to do harm — but the harm does not interest them.
Or they do not see it, or they justify it
Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle
To think well of themselves.
