About

It's been a minute but….

Join The CyPurr Collective for another one of our SUPER FUN SOCIALS (now you know it's fun, cause we just wrote that). Come by to hang out, meet other tech-minded folks, ask questions on cybersecurity issues, and generally snack out and enjoy our feature presentation!

This month we'll be watching War Games!

Film Description: WarGames is a 1983 American Cold War science fiction film written by Lawrence Lasker and Walter F. Parkes and directed by John Badham. The film stars Matthew Broderick, Dabney Coleman, John Wood, and Ally Sheedy. The film follows David Lightman (Broderick), a young hacker who unwittingly accesses WOPR (War Operation Plan Response), a United States military supercomputer originally programmed to predict possible outcomes of nuclear war. Lightman gets WOPR to run a nuclear war simulation, believing it to be a computer game. The computer, now tied into the nuclear weapons control system and unable to tell the difference between simulation and reality, attempts to start World War III.

Short discussion to follow! Can't wait to see ya there!
