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.

The most Internet-capable operating system was Unix, which was also popular because it was free and open source.


....Unix was free and open source? in 1993?

Now you could slap Linux onto the broken PC in your basement and be on the Internet from your bedroom.


DOS and Windows had reasonably easy internet access by 1993 too. We used it at Uni.
