The Social Network
kicks off with Jack White
’s guitar riff 
 Ball and Biscuit 
as the camerapans across a Harvard pub to a tablewhere Mark Zuckerberg drinks beerwith his date, Erica Albright. Theconversation is scattershot withelliptical leaps of obscurity concerningthe huge quantity of Chinese geniuses,the ease of entering exclusive clubsand Teddy Roosevelt. Poor Erica
