Some people think telecom is boring. And to them we say: You're boring and have obviously never taken the time to think about all the things that have been inspired by this industry.

Why, just the other day we were sitting in our architect-designed offices, having a remarkably interesting conversation about telecom while eating an amazing, fancy lunch catered by a super-chic restaurant that only allows truly fascinating people to eat its food, when, almost without trying, we came up with: The Top 10 Movies Inspired by Telecom.

But, hugely clever though we are, we may have missed a few. Put us straight on the message boards.

The Social Network
The social network is my favorite movie. Never have i ever seen such a brilliant, well-directed, well acted, beautifully written movie before.

Re: The bane of all babysitters
No, it wasn't possible to call your own phone in 1979 and not even in this movie.

 

There's gotta be space for a teleconference movie, with the participants dropping out one by one until the host is left with the Verizon muzak and the only way out is through the menu....

 

I'm also looking forward to the list 'Top Ten Telecom Product Placements'.

There were also a series of movies about hackers and such....One staring Angelina Jolie, one with Ryan Phillipe, and one with Sandra Bullock...one of them ought to be there.

Re: For real...
...sits Keith Willetts, pen at the ready, eager to sign copies of his best-selling book. But ... there's no one in line! Cue a slow buildup of vaguely sinister music. Keith shoots a look of vexation at event publicist Artie Fufkin. "Well, Artie ... where are they?" A flustered Fufkin hustles to the hallway to see if there's any sign of life. As he turns to look down the corridor, the now clearly sinister music reaches a crescendo and he sees what the problem is. Fufkin's flustered look turns to horror and the camera pans to ...

For real...
Cellular? The tag line on that one makes me feel embarassed for the actors...when the line goes dead, so does she. I bet we could colllectively write a pretty good telecom movie.

Hey! It's Friday so I'll start:

Setting: A half-deserted conference room in a large convention center. Blue carpet. Temporary walls. Flourescent lighting plays off a haze of trapped pollution that has an unknown origin. A constant buzz of background noise, thumping music, people speaking in microphones drones on. 10 round tables with rumpled table cloths fill the room. On the tables, cookie crumbs, dirty coffee cups, crumpled napkins. Chairs askew. At the far table, sits......

 

Who's next?
