I just love the detail that Mark Zuckerberg is obsessed with Augustus. If I were writing him as a character I would think-twice about that detail because it would seem too on the nose. He’s like Ozymandias in the Watchmen comics, and just as arrogant.
I like how of all the figures Zuckerberg could choose between like Napoleon or Alexander the Great or whatever, he picks Augustus. Augustus who is notoriously mocked by historians for being sickly as a child and more conceiving than traditionally militarily strong. (Gibbon just outright calls him “cowardly”.) Plus there are all sorts of juicy sexual details like rumors that his wife Livia never allowed him to sleep with her, and his inability to control his daughter’s sexuality - a lot of running themes of immasculinity here.
Zuckerberg basically picked a Nerd Emperor. Somebody that everybody counted out or thought they could control and instead conquered “the world” (>_>).
