Silicon Valley is more than a physical place—it's a way of looking at the world. There’s something about the Valley that gets under people’s skin and starts making them think—and act—different.

Bushnell founded Atari, created the video game industry, and invented the hacker-CEO archetype that defines the Valley today.

Alamo Drafthouse x WIRED25: Gattaca Screening Hosted by Edward Snowden
Limited Capacity full

When former intelligence officer Edward Snowden revealed in 2013 that the NSA was seizing the private records of billions of people, he helped spark the most significant reforms to U.S. surveillance policy since 1978—and his story read like a science fiction novel. In a special virtual conversation, Snowden will join former WIRED editor-in-chief Katrina Heron for a discussion about technology and its potentially dystopian future. Their conversation will be followed by a screening of Gattaca—the science fiction flick about space travel and eugenics—at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
