"I am Sam Esmail, creator of MR. ROBOT. AMA."

R/IAmA:

My main inspiration for the show and Elliot is a combination of 3 events:
One, my aforementioned frustration with the way Hollywood represents hacking and technology
Two, my personal experience with the Arab Spring, specifically in Egypt
And three, the financial collapse in 2008.
