Nmap was demonstrated in the Matrix Reloaded. Nmap trivia buffs may also know that Nmap source code was displayed in the 2000 movie Battle Royale ( [Screen1] [Screen2] [Trivia]). Lesser known is that it was featured in a 3rd movie after these two appearances. Nmap made the leap from Science Fiction to "hacker pr0n" with the release of HaXXXor Volume 1: No Longer Floppy. In a seven-minute chapter, the lovely E-Lita walks us through downloading, compiling, and executing Nmap while keeping our attention by methodically removing her clothing :). You can buy the DVD (cover image) for $10 at conferences such as Defcon or from the HaXXXor Girls web site. It contains other chapters such as "Naked Dumpster Diving" and "Young Love (Of Government Encryption)".Link, and more background on nmap here: Link.
