Every big tech company wanks off to pictures of James Cameron. They all assume that all nerds and sci-fans LOVE his Avatar film.

Nobody I knows talks about the Avatar films. It was a technical marvel for the time, but a crap story with little or no rich background.

Yet I think I've seen him as a guest in THREE tech conferences in the last year.

@gedvondur I always assumed his fame was mostly due to Terminator 2. Which *does* have a compelling story around the time travel paradox and inevitability of things.

@isagalaev I mean sure, he is known for that. But the tech companies love him for the tech in tech concepts in Avatar. That and the monster box office, as silicon valley uses money to keep score.
