In 1999, Steve Jobs invited Noah Wylie, who had just played Jobs in The Pirates of Silicon Valley, to open up his Macworld Keynote. Ever the showman, Jobs does a bit better job of managing the stage than Zuckerberg did. But, the similarities are pretty entertaining.
The result for both was a pretty funny and eye catching way to open a keynote, a bit cheesy, but pretty enjoyable.
