This is EPIC 2015, made by Robin Sloan, who is the CIO at Current.TV
Sloan made the film along with Matt Thompson in 2004, and it is remarkably prescient and still holds up well. The difficult part here is determining where historical fact drops off and fiction kicks in. Most of Sloan’s predictions (save Googlezon – so far at least) have come to pass. Sloan did not anticipate either Youtube, nor the impact of video – but he still does pretty well.
Sloan says the impetus to make the film was hearing a lecture by Martin Niesenholz, founder and President of NYTimes. com, and one of the smartest guys in the business.
Take a look.
