FYI, two recent movies that also touch upon this subject are the documentary "The Corporation" <http://www.thecorporation.com/>, which I recall having a few shots of old computers during that scene, and "The Fog of War" <http://www.errolmorris.com/film/fow.html>, an interview film with Robert McNamara featuring a Philip Glass soundtrack that includes a piece called "IBM Punch Cards" (a piece I naturally had to listen to immediately, although I still haven't seen the film!).
