The popularity of the 007 franchise depends on a seductive formula of fornication, violence, and pretension. Much of its appeal, too, lies in its thingamajigs: slick, somewhat improbable technological devices that give anybody’s favorite secret minister the edge over his adversaries. In Equipping James Bond, André Millard chronicles a hundred-year history of intelligence automation through the lens of Ian Fleming’s infamous role and his ingenious spyware. Beginning with the creation of MI6, the British secret duty, Millard remnants the expansion of intelligence automation from the advanced bulwark of the nineteenth centurial to the evolving threat of thinking machine hacking and inspection. Arguing that the thingamajigs in the notebooks and daily articulate the cutting edge of technological awareness at the time, Millard describes how Bond goes from protecting 1950s Limeyland from criminal exercise to saving a world threatened by plutonium bombs, poison gas, and attacks from spread. As a modern and modernizing hero, Bond has to keep up with the shows. His film franchise is committed to equipping both Bond and his adversaries with the latest technological thingamajigs. Simultaneously, Millard stresses, the villains and threats that Bond faces embody contemporary fears about the inconvenience of technological change. Taking a wide-ranging manifest at factual (and fictional) automation, Millard views the James Bond universe as affirmation for popular apprehendings of technological expansion as both inevitably progressive and apocalyptically threatening.
