The Infamous Mark Zuckerberg Nervous Breakdown

The Infamous Mark Zuckerberg Nervous Breakdown

You’ve all seen that spooky Social Network trailer with the choral cover of Radiohead’s Creep.  It works on the real-life Mark Zuckerberg, too.  Here’s the infamous video of his nervous breakdown at the D8 Conference set to the same music.  Zuckerberg broke out in a profuse sweat last month at the conference when he was pointedly asked about Facebook’s privacy lapses.  By the end of the clip, he’s so flustered that he removes his hoodie which perpetually encases him like armor.  Inside was a creepy symbol, which one interviewer initially thought looked similar to an Illuminati-like emblem.

And for comparison, here’s the original trailer for The Social Network:

A Beautiful Mind: Stephen Wiltshire Draws New York City from Memory

A Beautiful Mind: Stephen Wiltshire Draws New York City from Memory

Steven Wiltshire (born 1974) is an accomplished architectural artist who has been diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder.  Wiltshire’s work has been the subject of many television documentaries; neurologist Oliver Sacks praised his artistic work in the chapter Prodigies in his book An Anthropologist on Mars.  Stephen Wiltshire’s many published art books have included Cities (1989), Floating Cities (1991) and Stephen Wiltshire’s American Dream (1993).

Wiltshire is presently working to complete his last drawing in a series of city panoramas, this time of his spiritual home, New York City.  Wiltshire’s collection of  already completed works depicting some of the world’s most iconic cities already includes London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Rome, Madrid, Frankfurt, Dubai, and Jerusalem.  A 20-minute fly-over Manhattan this past weekend provided the memory for a 20-foot panorama of the city that he’s drawing throughout this week at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute.  Viewers can watch his progress on a live web cam or visit the Institute while he works from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday, Oct. 26 to Friday, Oct. 30, 2009.

Stephen Wiltshire: Architectural Drawing

Yesterday, I was thinking of an adolescent young man (diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome) with whom I work and about how richly human and brilliant he is.  At the same time, I reminisced about how reciprocally warm and affectionate our relationship has been during the time we have known each other.

Later that night, thoughts about Steven Wiltshire (born 1974) came to mind.  Wiltshire is an accomplished architectural artist who has been diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder.  Wiltshire’s work has been the subject of many television documentaries; neurologist Oliver Sacks praised his artistic work in the chapter ‘Prodigies” in his book “An Anthropologist on Mars.

Stephen Wiltshire’s published art books have included “Cities” (1989), “Floating Cities” (1991) and “Stephen Wiltshire’s American Dream” (1993).
