Back from the preview of the fb movie, The Social Network September 10, 2010

The deepest impression The Social Network left with me is my profound gratitude to the Minneapolis St. Paul social media community for having grown up. Perhaps flyover land never went through the culture seen in this movie. Watching sections of the movie where the lawyers debated who owned what and who would shaft whom to get what they wanted: I kept waiting for Michael Douglas to stroll over from Wall Street!! Thank you to the social media community in Minneapolis St. Paul for being achieving, results-oriented folks who can grow without bringing out the knives.

I met Mr. Dunne at a book signing in Minneapolis, just before he went to California to cover the trial of the Menendez brothers. At the time, his fame was yet to come; he sat alone at a table with perhaps one or two people in the store, buying his books and having them autographed. He seemed a little shy, alone, but so elegant and so willing to talk and answer questions. After the Simpson trial, it is hard to ever imagine Mr. Dunne alone again. I’ve followed his articles in Vanity Fair, and read all his books. Will we ever see his last novel, the update to People Like Us? He will be so very missed.
