Robot Authenticity

I've gone back and started watching "Mr. Robot" from the beginning again. I always believed that a lot of the code was real and the technology was legit and something with which I could identify.

And then I reached an episode where Elliot typed in nano to edit a file and realized it's just Hollywood garbage again.

No real hacker uses nano.

I would have respected him for even starting up Emacs. I wouldn't have agreed, but he would have had my respect.
