Diebold Memory Card

I watched a very scary documentary on Diebold voting machines and the election vote counting process. I had trouble going to sleep after seeing the laughable ease the software can be manipulated to rig an election. The documentary is on HBO and is called Hacking Democracy.

Movies About Architects

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

I picked up two movies about Architects today.

My Architect

My Architect: A Son’s Journey. The secret life of architectural genius Louis Kahn. The movie was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Documentary.

Frank Gehry

Sketches of Frank Gehry by Sydney Pollack. Chronicles the friendship between director Sydney Pollock and the famed architect.

When I view these movies I will post a review of each.
