The famous "Minority Report" gestural user interface

At this month’s event, we’re turning down the lights and rolling out some munchies. Join us for an informal screening of a variety of movies about our relationship with the tools and technologies that surround us — either as designers, or as end users. We’ll view clips from commercial films as well as a good variety of online videos from sources such as YouTube.

Suggest a movie

Seen something that inspired you professionally? That got you thinking? That had you Rolling On The Floor Laughing? Bring your suggestions and we’ll get them on the playlist. If you can’t make it but have something great to share, please let us know by leaving a comment to this post.

RSVPs requested

If you’re hoping to join us, please send an RSVP to Wanda Eby at Communitech, so we know how much popcorn to pop.

Hope to see you there!

    Here’re a few that might make sense:

    Alien (really love their approach to tech & interface design)
    Frank Lloyd Wright: A Film by Ken Burns (part of the American Experience series)
    The Technical Writer (with Tatum O’Neal)
    Desk Set (Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, Gig Young–what happens when a corporate librarian is in danger of being replaced by a computer)

    Obvious ones include The Net with Sandra Bullock, Office Space, Modern Times with Charlie Chaplin, Helvetica, and Pirates of Silicon Valley (Noah Wylie as Steve Jobs)

    Sounds like a great idea, btw! I’ll suggest it to RUX (
