General Magic

Many of the ideas that now dominate the tech industry and our day-to-day lives were born in 1989 at a Silicon Valley startup just outside of San Francisco that no one has ever heard of—General Magic. Although the company died, the concepts and the people who worked there went on to change how the world connects today. Described by Forbes as “The most important dead company in Silicon Valley” and combining rare archive footage with contemporary stories of the General Magicians today, this documentary captures the spirit of those of us who dare to dream big and the life-changing consequences when we fail, fail again, fail better and ultimately succeed.

General Magic is part of our Techflix series.
