Without question, the Winklevoss twins, of The Social Network fame, are assholes: two silver spoons, two senses of entitlement, two grown men whingeing over a nine-figure settlement. So with that in mind, it is not surprising to read the Brainstorm Tech interview of Larry Summers, former Harvard president and renowned arrogant bastard. From Fortune, 20 July 2011:

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 a**hole. This was the latter case.

Amazing.

By the way, am I alone in seeing Mark Zuckerberg as the Shia LaBeouf of tech CEOs? Incomprehensible success meets tremendous lack of likability.
