We Live in Public
First screened in April 2009
Director: Ondi Timoner. Documentary about Josh Harris's experiments in early web technologies and surveillance communities. Interview subjects include Josh Harris.

Twitter Capsule: Clearly most gripping as a document of the underground living community. Less persuasive as study of an antihero.

VOR:   Most valuable for footage of the bunker. But film is fuzzy on details. Seems heavily invested in framing a fallen-prophet Icarus narrative Harris may not deserve. Tricky to trust.
