I'm Drew Breunig and I obsess about technology, media, language, and culture. I live in New York, studied anthropology, and lead strategy at PlaceIQ.

These are reactions to things I feel are important.

Too bad about Frank, isn’t it?

The first thing HAL 9000 says after he kills an astronaut by crashing a shuttle into him.

2001 is very visionary in all aspects except the characters and sociocultural elements. On the moon there are still ‘girls’ typing up all the male scientists’ communication. Everyone reads late 50s British.

But this works so well for the HAL, who comes across as a panicky, clumsy computer who’s not quite sure if anyone suspects his transgressions.
