“A rippling standing ovation followed the film. We Estonians are typically straight faced as people, resistant to emotion or expression in public, but the film resonated something deep within our audience.
“My hope and dream is that General Magic elevates the purpose of each Town employee.”
In 1990, at a secretive Silicon Valley startup, a small and passionate group of engineers and visionaries formed one of history’s greatest tech teams to build a magical device that would enable anyone to connect everyone, everywhere to everything. In 1994, General Magic shipped it’s handheld personal communicator - the world’s first Smartphone, built upon the core technologies and ideas that dominate our lives today.
The film weaves rare archival footage of the company’s inspirational birth, grave betrayal, and devastating collapse with contemporary, honest, and powerful insights from the “Magicians” today as they reflect on the most influential Silicon Valley company no one has ever heard of.
