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 guy worked at Sybase during its heyday, on Wall St in the 90s, doing very early web development, and at a high profile dotcom during the mania. Interesting stuff. I wish he would have gone deeper into what it was like to work at some of these places. I've always just been in IT. The book is fast reading but I'd like more details.
