Wargames 40th Anniversary

Hello Protocols, Packets, and Programs,

June 3rd marked the 40th anniversary of the movie Wargames.

Famous for its depiction of wardialing, hacking, Tab, tic-tac-toe, global thermonuclear war, and –

to quote character Stephen Falken, “…a computer enhanced hallucination!”

All of which sounds familiar today.

We still have AT commands in mobile devices.

We still have product placement.

And we’re still creating computer systems that hallucinate.
