This film shows the disaster of the Kuwaitian oil fields in flames, with few interviews and no explanatory narration. Hell itself is presented in such beautiful sights and music that one has to be fascinated by it.

Professor Leonard Kleinrock:
The capacity on the ith channel, should be the traffic on the ith channel over the speed of the ith channel; plus how much capacity is left over - then you split it according to the square root of the traffic on that channel, over the summation of the square root over all channels.

Amazing survey of the best and the worst of the Internet
I just saw this film at the SF Film Festival. I thought it was excellent. It was far better than I expected. I am not a tech person and assumed I would not really appreciate the subject matter. I only went to see it because I usually enjoy Herzog films and figured I would give it a chance.
Wow, it kind of blew my mind to see the range of material that was covered. I was quite impressed that he managed to cover such a large canvas and each segment was fascinating. He created 10 segments, each focusing on a different perspective on tech. I really liked the fact that he started from the beginnings of the Internet and interviewed many of the earliest key people involved. This record of their experiences makes the film an invaluable document of history.
I also really liked the fact that he confronted some of the very serious problems that the Internet has created in our world and didn't just focus on the wonderful aspects.
Definitely check out this film, whether you love the Internet or hate it, there is great stuff here to ponder....
