I recently blogged about an online Nmap training video and referenced some movies that featured the Nmap application. It’s not just movies that feature information technology. Television features it’s share of information technology also. However, like anything you see on TV or in the movies, you have to consider accuracy of the information source. TV shows are not meant to be educational unless marketed as such, even then sources should be verified and established as credible. A recent Numb3ers show featured a segment about IRC or internet relay chat. According to the video below from YouTube, that is about all that was accurate about this information technology reference.
