Remember WarGames? 25 years ago, it was the movie that brought such nerdy topics as IMSAI computers, modems, War Dialing, implausibly oversmart artificial intelligence, and Matthew Broderick to a global audience. (Well okay, it was technically Broderick's second film role, but I don't see anybody doing a 25-year retrospective on Max Dugan Returns....) Anyway, WarGames was a big hit, and an inspiration for young nerds everywhere. 25 years on, Google invited a panel of writers involved with the movie to discuss its creation and legacy.

The panel includes:

Lawrence Lasker - Writer/Producer
Walter Parkes - Writer/Producer
Peter Schwartz - Author of The Art of the Long View

The three panelists were also involved with another great hacker movie, Sneakers. But that's another story.
