In the News "Like any space opera, the story of information technology is a very simple one. It is played out in a myriad of different ways by a revolving cast of characters, but it always has its loveable heroes, its predictably nefarious villains, innocent civilians to be saved, and bumbling bureaucrats that aren't inherently evil, but begin every story aiding the forces of darkness out of a misplaced belief they are preserving law and order in their corner of the galaxy." He might use Star Wars as an analogy (I strongly dislike Star Wars - Trekkie here), but it sums up very well how I feel about computing today.

Well he probably saw the prequels ;-)

Btw for those that haven't seen it I recommend going to red letter media and seeing the plinkett reviews of the star wars prequels, not only will you laugh so hard your sides will hurt but you'll learn quite a few things you probably didn't even notice in the movies when you saw them the first time, for example look at how many times Lucas uses the "over over twoshot" where he sticks people on a couch or by a window so he can just use an over over twoshot instead of actually doing anything interesting. Plinkett theorizes this was so Lucas wouldn't have to get out of his chair and could keep drinking his coffee LOL!

Agreed, the Plinkett reviews are brilliant - and probably the only good thing about the SW prequels.

not only will you laugh so hard your sides will hurt but you'll learn quite a few things you probably didn't even notice in the movies when you saw them the first time


You may not have noticed them... but your brain did ;)

Seen the Half In The Bag on Lucas' newest turd, Red Tails? Or the Crystal Skull review?

Also, Harrison Ford watches the real Indiana Jones series for the first time ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aDFeFwxymA
