Ihr kennt unter Umständen Bill Murrays Technology-Rant für eine nie realisierte TV-Sendung über Games namens 'Wired In'. Here's the whole Thing: „The tape features a demo for the television show "Wired In." While the program never actually came to fruition, the footage and demos put together are an interesting look into the the technological trends and innovations of the 1980s.“

00:00 This tape begins with a video demo title screen.
00:33 Cut to the Bill Murray intro for the program.
00:55 Fade into a segment featuring Lily Tomlin giving a Pac Man PSA.
01:39 Cut to the video game excerpt. We see footage from inside an arcade, hear a few words about video games from Bally/Midway Programmer Jay Fenton, and spend time with a family playing Atari. Arcade owner Silver Sue talks about the much needed exposure people are getting to computers through arcade games. This lasts for several minutes.
03:49 Cut to a compilation of vintage commercials.
05:11 Cut to a Whiz Kids excerpt. We watch as children work with computers. Fourteen year old Joel Heller links up to a network and sends a early version of an e-mail to another person. Joel’s mother talks about the frightening aspects of electronic communication and her ineptitude with computers. Joel makes an interesting observation about his communicating with another person through the computer. “When someone you don’t know writes to you sometimes you forget that it’s another human being writing to you. It’s not the computer.” Joel’s mother goes on to talk about the generation gap in the computer world.
08:32 Bill Murray comments on the technological advancements made in recent years.
