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.

Well, chapter 1 was reasonably interesting... but then it sounded like my career so far (London rather than New York though), so I guess I feel empathy(?!)

I'd rather read your memoir, because even though I have no idea who you are at least I see your nick pop up very often here.

That makes if far more interesting than to read about what for me is just some random guy, even though apparently isn't.
