Bad Tech in Hollywood

I can’t remember the last movie that was largely based on technology that got any terminology or its proper use correct. They hire technical advisors to make sure that what they are portraying is correct. What they really need is someone to make sure the technical advisors actually know something. I just watched the first 24 minutes of 24 which will air on Sunday. Don’t worry I am not going to give anything away. If you’re a geek or at least know some terminology you will be bent over laughing within the first 10-15 minutes. It’s like someone picked up a Linksys router manual jumbled some keywords around and made a portion of the script from it. If anyone from Hollywood reads this, I’m available to be a technical advisor. At least you might get something right for a change. Don’t get me wrong, I love the show. I’d just wish they would take the time to make some things that are supposed to be intelligent actually intelligent.
