The past always thinks the future will be pretty dumb.

The past always thinks the future will be less disappointing.

To be fair, the present always thinks the past must have been pretty dumb, too.

Innocent Bystander - 2012-01-17
And nine times out of ten the present can't really get the present right either.

This was way more efficient than computer filing systems of the early 1990s!

Not command line.

Since I've read Nueromancer, I've realized how many movies have ripped it off.
Old_Zircon - 2012-01-16
All of them.

Believe it or not, the book was even more stupid.

It might not seem it, but I always hold this up as one of the most 90s movies ever made. You have the early 90s VR obsession combined with the height of PC backlash with a poor white male being ridiculed for accusing a woman of sexual harassment.

VR was as widely understood in the 90s as AI was in the 60s.

Yeah, Al is a bit of a mystery. Sometimes he just gets up and goes for weeks at a time. Nobody asks where when he comes back, because he just wouldn't tell us.

We can all learn a thing or two from Al.

We're talking about Strong AI, right?

Should have gotten Jones the cyber-dolphin to help him hack his own brain.

I read an interview with Takeshi Kitano once where he says he deeply regrets not reading the script first that time around.

Did I see that right, is he standing on a mini-trampoline?

Also, loving this week's "crappy computer gimmicks in TV/movies" week.
Syd Midnight - 2012-01-23
Before I noticed the trampoline I was hoping he was wandering around his apartment and would eventually walk into a wall or trip over the toilet or something. That's a scene I'd like to see in cheesy old pseudo-cyberpunk, horrible accidents resulting from standard input devices that require way more effort and coordination than mouse and keyboard.
