Reboot - A Film by Joe Kawasaki

Joe Kawasaki wrote and directed this hacker-themed film described as:


Set within a dystopian world that is a collision between technology and humanity, "Reboot" touches upon many of the current social and political concerns that arise from becoming more and more intertwined with the virtual.

In contemporary Los Angeles, a young female hacker (Stat) awakens from unconsciousness to find an iPhone glued to her hand and a mysterious countdown ticking away on the display. Suffering from head trauma, and with little recollection of who she is or what is happening, Stat races against time to figure out what the code means, and what unknown event the pending zero-hour will bring.

Re: Reboot - A Film by Joe Kawasaki

Looking forward to see this movie, and all the producers and people in the special thanks to. (ziplock is one of the associate producers afaik, and well, intern0t is in the special thanks to  :) )

Supporting a movie that shows real hacker tools is something the hacker community should always do, even if the plot is not really that great hehe  ;D

Having not paid attention to what's coming out in theatres (with the exception of Dark Knight Rises), this is a welcome surprise. Looking forward to seeing it when it hits the big screens. Looks like it has the potential to actually be a good cyberpunk movie.

Looks like this is premiering at DEFCON, along with Code2600. Very excited to see both of these!

Re: Reboot - A Film by Joe Kawasaki

code2600.com

CODE 2600 documents the rise of the Information Technology Age as told through the events and people who helped build and manipulate it. The film explores the impact this new connectivity has on our ability to remain human while maintaining our personal privacy and security.

As we struggle to comprehend the wide-spanning socio-technical fallout caused by data collection and social networks, our modern culture is caught in an undercurrent of cyber-attacks, identity theft and privacy invasion. Both enlightening and disturbing, CODE 2600 is a provocative wake-up call for a society caught in the grips of a global IT takeover.

Sorry for not providing a link on that. I somehow heard about Code2600 before Reboot, they both look like they will be excellent.

I have, earlier this week  ;D The movie / short film was pretty awesome, but at the end I wanted more, as it ended at a moment where a lot of unanswered questions were still there.

I wasn't bored while watching the movie, even though I did find the exploits they were using, somewhat funny. Unlikely they would exploit an iPhone the way they did, but all of it was plausible.

It is however, better than most other movies, plus Offensive Security, Ziplock, InterN0T, TheXero and many other people supports this movie (look at the ending credits, some of the mentioned nicks may have used their real names though).

If you want to see a decent show, look at "Tiger Team", it's only two episodes, but it's the most real hacker show I have ever seen. They don't hack much with computers, it's mostly social engineering and bypassing physical access controls, but none the less what they are doing, is 100% real, and they even steal a ferrari at some point :-)

Re: Reboot - A Film by Joe Kawasaki

I have now seen the film and agree with MaXe it really left me hanging at the end I was so confused like what is this the end I had to look see where the timer was to confirm I had reached the end of the film.
