To Understand the Present, You Have to Know the Past
Matt Rocker, a documentary filmmaker who focuses on stories about music, technology and subculture, and his team are creating a documentary that explores questions such as: Has personal computing lived up to its promise? Has this ever-present technology increased our potential as human beings?
The film will provide a unique perspective gathered from interviews with the pioneers who helped to invent personal computing and the role of computers in society. As Matt says, “No documentary has comprehensively examined this history from the perspective of the key contributors.”
Matt and his team filmed their first three interviews in November of 2019 and created a “teaser” that is being used as a proof of concept and as fundraising material for further filming. For more information about the film and to watch the teaser, click here.
