GeekGirlCon & Central Cinema Present: Wargames

BBC and Central Cinema Present Wargames January 30

 

Have you ever portrayed the bad guy in a computer game and then accidentally almost started World War III? Well, Matthew Broderick has, as David Lightman in WarGames. Before he was everyone’s favorite teenage rebel in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off–where he played a disgruntled high school student hacking into the school computers to change the number of sick days he had taken–Broderick played a disgruntled high school student hacking into the school computers to change the poor grade he had just received. Ever wonder if Ferris learned a thing or two from David?

In WarGames, with his friend Jennifer Mack (played by The Breakfast Club’s Ally Sheedy), David accidentally hacks into a game that isn’t a game…and you’ll have to watch the movie to see how it ends!

Laurel McJannet
“Rock On!”

Laurel McJannet

Back in the day (we won’t say when), Laurel cut out words from Seventeen™, took pictures of friends/cute boys, and arranged them onto her PeeChee, protecting the final masterpiece with strips of Scotch tape as makeshift lamination. Fast-forward a ”few” years later where Laurel now writes, designs and consults as a marketing professional. (She has a B.A. in Communications and a MARCOM Certificate from the University of Washington.) The day she got access from IT to update a website (using straight up HTML, BTW) was the day she became… A GEEK. This website led to more websites and managing major ecommerce projects. Today, there isn’t a CMS she can't figure out, she’s mastered the art of translating tech-speak for the non-techie, and she is proof that marketing and IT can co-exist and not implode. Laurel enjoys all things Apple™, yoga, and the antics of her 8-year-old son (which she writes about on her blog and FB.) She is a recovering Tetris, Farmville, Café World and Cityville social gamer who now feeds her addiction with Clash of Clans, Plants vs. Zombies, Faireway Solitare, Draw Something, and Words with Friends on her iPad. Let’s play!
