Mark: I think I've come up with something.

Eduardo: Hang on. I gotta tell you something that you're not gonna believe.

Mark: What?

Eduardo: I got punched by the Phoenix.

Mark: Are you kidding?

Eduardo: No. I mean, it's just the first of a four-step process, but they slid the invitation under my door tonight. I go to my first punch party tomorrow.

Mark: So...You got punched by the Phoenix.

Eduardo: Yeah, but, you know, it was probably just a diversity thing. It was just a diversity thing. Just ride that horse until...What did you wanna talk to me about? Mark?

Mark: Yeah.

Eduardo: You said you'd come up with something.

Mark: Yeah, I think I've come up with something. Come outside and let's talk.

Eduardo: It's 20 degrees outside.

Mark: I can't stare at that loop of Niagara Falls, which has absolutely nothing to do with the Caribbean. People came to Facemash in a stampede, right?

Eduardo: Yeah.

Mark: But it wasn't because they saw pictures of hot girls. You can go anywhere on the Internet and see pictures of hot girls.

Eduardo: Yeah.

Mark: It was because they saw pictures of girls that they knew. People want to go on the Internet and check out their friends, so why not build a website that offers that? Friends, pictures, profiles, whatever you can visit. Browse around. Maybe it's someone you just met at a party. But I'm not talking about a dating site. I'm talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online.

The Social Network《社交网络》精讲之二

Eduardo: I can't feel my legs.

Mark: I know. I'm totally psyched about this, too. But, Wardo?

Eduardo: Yeah?


(Reflash to the deposition, in a lawsuit) Eduardo: "It would be exclusive."


Mark: You would have to know the people on the site to get past your own page. Like getting punched.

Eduardo: Now, that's good.

Mark: Wardo, it's like a final club, except we're the president.


(At the deposition) Eduardo: I told him I thought it sounded great. It was a great idea. There was nothing to hack. People were gonna provide their own pictures, their own information. And people had the ability to invite, or not invite, their friends to join. See, in a world where social structure was everything, that was the thing. It was a big project, and he was going to have to write tens of thousands of lines of code, so I wondered why he was coming to me and not his roommates, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. They were programmers.


Mark: We're gonna need a little start-up cash to rent the servers and get it online.


(At the deposition) Eduardo: So that was why.

Eduardo’s lawyer: Did he offer terms?

Eduardo: Yes.


Mark: We'll split it 70/30. 70 for me, 30 for you for putting up the $1,000 and for handling everything on the business end. You're CFO.


(At the deposition) Eduardo’s lawyer: And you said?

Eduardo: I said, "Let's do it."

2. Hang on: 等一下。

3. I got punched by the Phoenix: 凤凰社邀请我参加潘趣酒会了。这种酒会一般是社员才能参加的活动,这意味着凤凰社向爱德华多伸来了橄榄枝。punch有“潘趣酒”的意思,潘趣酒是一种用酒、果汁、香料等调和的饮料。

6. I can't feel my legs: 这里爱德华多是在说自己冻得脚都没感觉了,马克还以为爱德华多是听了他的提议后太兴奋了。
