Tech Shift: New television shows focus on tech life
There are two new TV shows taking on the world of tech. One is a modern day comedy: HBO’s Silicon Valley just wrapped its first season.
But the other is a new show AMC is betting big on as something to pass the torch to as Mad Men draws to an end. It’s a drama called Halt and Catch Fire and its pilot episode aired this week.
Mark Yarm, who recently wrote about Halt and Catch Fire for Wired Magazine, and Sam Muskovitch, a technology reporter for Ars Technica, give us their thoughts.
