What drives you crazy when you watch a movie that depicts programmers?
jhotz 38 weeks ago
It’s a sad fact that generally, any movie you go see that features your own area of expertise will suffer, because it’s hard to see past the “poetic license” that is used. For example, when I was an undergrad I studied physical anthropology and archaeology, and went to see Congo which had an anthropologist as a character. It was a wretched movie anyway, but the “that’s not the way it works” voice in my head made it even worse. There was an article on ITworld today about the movie Wargames, which make me wonder what do movies do that drives other people crazy when the film depicts programmers/hackers?
