Poking around YouTube yesterday, I came across the 1983 movie WarGames. I couldn't help but be captivated and fascinated by noting the technology differences between the world of 1983 and today. Computers are so different, and Matthew Broderick looked so young in that film. It's amazing, in a sense, how simple the threat was in those days...it was the Russians, period.
It's also amazing how willing we are to believe what our computers tell us; Falken provides the sense of logic and reason that is so missing from today's world.
A couple of favorite moments...
Tic-tac-toe saved the world from nuclear destruction.
The line "I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought it would do any good; let the boy in there."
