In the News Levi Asher offers his free memoir of his rise and fall in the dot-com boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s. The autobiography covers Asher's twenty-five years in programming: his founding of the oldest ongoing literature website Literary Kicks in 1994, his success with the dot-com website iVillage in 1999 (and its subsequent collapse), and how all this insanity affected his personal life. It's a quick, entertaining read.

I read the whole thing. I'd recommend it.

GOOD --

* Easy to read, well-written
* Fun
* He was in lots of the key trends of the past 2 decades

BAD --

* Some parts I didn't care about, like his literary aspirations
* A little self-serving where it mentions his accomplishments
