…of 2008.

You didn’t think I would stop now, would you?

Well, the year 2008 was quite interesting and sad at the same time. All the different Top Lists popping up everywhere remind me that another year has passed. But what a year it was.

Computers in real life are boring. Even Apple computers. You sit there all day, use your mouse, hit your keyboard and wait. Perhaps this is the reason why computers and especially human computer interactions look so much cooler in movies (the other reason would be the total lack of knowledge regarding our electronic friends).

Regardless of the reasons I am a movie freak so I immediately remembered all those movie moments with all kinds of uber-cool computer screens and interactions – and tried to imitate them in real life during my Wordpress update.

Of course, I failed miserably. But that doesn’t stop me from writing the dream of

Sometimes it is amazing what you can experience in a movie theater.

Many times I remember more that happened besides the movie than the movie itself. In fact this happens most of the time (which is no good sign for the industry). The whole experience of an evening you spend with your friends in a building constructed solely for that purpose is something you never can truly recreate in your home.

And besides the whole atmosphere there are sometimes moments which are simply crazily funny. It’s like watching THE TOWERING INFERNO in a skyscraper at night – alone.
