The Name

The name “Lotek” (corruption of “Low Tech”) was drawn from the name of an underground organization central to the plot of the post-apocalyptic movie Johnny Mnemonic (1995). This movie is essentially the original The Matrix (1999), both starring Keanu Reeves. Interestingly, Mr. Smith is the protagonist in Johnny Mnemonic, whereas he was the antagonist in The Matrix series. In other words, The Matrix is a rip-off of Johnny Mnemonic, though admittedly a good one.
