New movie "Firewall" starring Harrison Ford

First "The Net" and now "Firewall" -- the Hollywood movie machine tries to make a thriller out of things Internet. Ford plays a security executive at a bank who's pitted against an evildoer who steals Ford's identity and kidnaps his family. It's not clear to me that there are many cases involving both identity theft and kidnapping, but what the heck, it's Hollywood.

I'm looking forward to a whole passel of major motion pictures with Internet-related titles:

  • Switch
  • Router
  • Hub
  • VPN
  • SSL
  • HTTP
  • The File Transfer Protocol
  • Spam
  • VoIP
  • Wi-Fi (and its sequel, Wi-MAX)
  • XML (and its sequel, XSLT)

And, of course...

  • Blogger
All coming soon to a theater near you.
