Here's a documentary on Theranos :
The CEO strikes me as a female psychopath and the way she tried to emulate Steve Jobs (everything from dressing like him,to giving presentations with the same aesthetic to lowering her voice) is pretty creepy.What's more interesting is how long she managed to keep the lie going despite showing no evidence of her miracle invention.It's only 30 min long and is pretty interesting.
Edit : I think the forum ate my last post,so I'll try to post this again.

Chilling. She could have gone far in politics. Female psychopaths are subtle monsters and difficult to identify. Scary!

Hunter S Thompson documentary. My god this bloke was weird! He lived life on the edge, and when he knew he had a neurodegenerative disease he decided to blow his own brains out. He saw the hypocrisy of the politicians all too well though. A fascinating character no doubt.

The Assange Story. WikiLeaks founder’s journey from whistleblowing hero to exile [RT Documentary 2020]
www.youtube.com/watch?v=630X89TbI74
The fate of Julian Assange will soon be decided, as he prepares to fight for his freedom in a landmark extradition hearing in London. The US wants to get its hands on the WikiLeaks founder in what the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture called "the collective persecution" by a group of "democratic" states. If convicted, Assange could face decades in a US jail. In April 2019, Julian Assange was dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy and sent to Belmarsh Prison for breaching his bail terms.

Through WikiLeaks, Julian Assange published a trove of classified documents on the powerful elite, including war crimes committed by the military on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and embarrassing details from politicians' emails.

The Assange Story pieces together accounts from Assange's friends, family and former colleagues to build up a clearer understanding of the personality and motivation in the man behind what's been called the 'biggest leaks in intelligence history'.

" COMPUTER CHIPS SHAPE AN INFORMATION SOCIETY " 1980s COMPUTER ENGINEERING FILM 65024
www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJLwapY7fug
In this episode of Screen News Digest (Vol. 27, No. 6), viewers see a very brief history of the development of computing and the ways in which microchips impact contemporary everyday life. The episode opens with footage of Stonehenge, microchips, and people working with computers in offices. Two people use their fingers to count, then they place stones on the sand to represent values (in development of counting). The episode shows an abacus, a reenactment of Blaise Pascal inventing his counting machine, and a reenactment of Joseph Jacquard developing a programmable loom controlled by punch cards. A punch roll operates a player piano. The episode shows a reenactment of Charles Babbage in 1823 developing his steam-powered computing machine . This is followed by shots of a cash register, vacuum tubes in early computing machines, and photos of the first ENIAC computer in 1946, as well as photos of the first transistor computer. A man operates a computer, developing circuit layouts on the monitor. Viewers see some clips of the production of microchips. People work at desks in a large room housing large computers. At an aerospace factory, people move rocket blaster cones. A robotic assembly line assembles some product. Viewers see a space shuttle taking off. There is a montage of shots of people working with computers, including an office desk top, check processing machines, bank ATMs, and a home desktop computer. A supermarket clerk scans groceries. Two men retrieve their plane tickets using an automated ticket kiosk. A couple dines at a fancy restaurant in a hotel. A helicopter lands at a hospital, and an injured person is carried off the chopper on a stretcher. The film concludes with footage of Stonehenge, computers, and a city skyline at night."
" COMPUTERS: TOOLS FOR PEOPLE " 1980s COMPUTER & SOFTWARE EDUCATIONAL FILM APPLE II 63094
www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_Q-wjRxAYs
This short 1982 educational film, produced by Dimension Films shortly before the company folded in 1985. The film gives viewers a look at the different ways computers are used in society (specifically, it discusses computer use for creative, machine control, models, and files). The film opens with a shot of a computer in a large room. Children sit around an Apple II computer and monitor. A man uses a computer to generate designs. Dr. Derek Sampson looks at a computer printout of patient names. He speaks with a young woman waiting for a kidney transplant. A woman carries a kidney in a box into a hospital. Dr. Sampson speaks to the camera about using computers to expedite the process of identifying kidney recipient matches. A woman sketches out a flow chart for a computer program to identify patients in need of kidney transplants to match tissue and blood types. Dr. Sampson enters the relevant information about a donated kidney into the computer. Groceries are scanned at a grocery store. The film shows the magnetic tapes in an IBM computer running the bar code processing program. The 62TM drive shown was a magnetic drive capable of storing 10MB of data. Traffic announcers read traffic alerts over the air at Metro Traffic Control, reading updated alerts on computer monitors running Instatrak II software, and issuing a SIGALERT for traffic problems. Jerry Curtis checks on GM / Pontiac Camaros being manufactured on an assembly line. He shows the camera a controller used to control a welding robot on the line. He demonstrates how to program a welding spot line. He then reviews the program on the computer monitor. The film shows the computer system’s electric eye. Dr. James Blinn sits at a computer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and models a robotic arm for a space vehicle. The film then shows numbers from another model used to save the El Segundo Blue butterfly. The butterfly eats from a buckwheat flower next to an oil refinery plant. Dr. Richard Arnold observes the buckwheat plants. Dr. Arnold uses a computer in his office to make a mathematical model of ideal numbers of buckwheat plants for the butterflies. Students use an Apple II computer modeling program at FOLLK (Friends of LISP/Logo & Kids) to understand how fish populations work. Other students use the program Logo on an Apple II to create graphic art. A man installs a new circuit board in a computer. Two students discuss making titles for the film. The girls try running the title; they then debug their coding after the timing of the title doesn’t run correctly. A woman inserts a floppy disc in an office to prepare a report on a Xerox 8010 Star -- this was the first computer to ship with a mouse. An artist designs a work on a computer using a simple paintbrush program. The film then shows shots of the various people featured in the film working on flowcharts for their computer programs in their respective areas, concluding the film.
1979 Computer Store Manager Predicts Future

I recently found this interview in my archives. I was shooting a documentary called “The Information Society” in 1979 and filmed this in Cedar Rapids Iowa. Compushop had just begun selling the Apple II and this guy had a keen sense of what was coming.
