Seriously, my real technological idol is Zero Cool, that kid from the movie Hackers...I know it was fake, but still totally awesome!


I swear I had no idea how many people were going to say me when I started this thread. Just a happy coincidence.

:tt2:/>

lol true story though, Hackers has been one of my favorite movies since it came out. It's soooo lame and soooo ridiculous and hilariously inaccurate, and now I delight when it dates itself ("a 14.4 modem! wow!") but it and Tron are what really piqued my interest in computers to begin with (well, that and a couple real-life influences such as my Uncle and my dad's friend).

Jonny Lee Miller is awesome, too. Plunkett and Maclean is another of my favorite movies, and I about jumped out of my seat cheering in Dexter Season 5 when I realized he was playing Jordan Chase.

Also, I use Zero Cool in Kingdom of Loathing:

Yeah Bort, that's just about precisely the kind of thing I was envisioning.

depricated: I had an uncle that could be attributed to getting me interested in computers, but then when I was 8 years old he accused me something so totally wrong an immoral that no one in the family has spoken to or of him since. We did later find out that we was in fact the one guilty of what he was accusing me of. Still no clue why he was trying to say I was doing it.

I just spent 10 minutes trying to think of the totally wrong and immoral things that an 8 year old may do. That's how bored I am.

The things he was accusing me of are things you'd expect to hear about some guy in his 40's that lives alone in a house back in the woods. You know, the guy who stares just a little too long at the young girls or boys as he's driving by the local playground.

I am a bit curious to know what you came up with though. :)

@magius You know, the usual: torturing the neighbourhood animals and kids, having a collection of babysitter heads, being the antichrist, stealing stuff...

My fictional idols would be Doctor Rodney Mckay or The Doctor. For my real life idols I would have to say Neil Degrasse Tyson
