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.

Fair point. I read 3 chapters and enjoyed. Bookmarked the site for some weekend reading (like making time for the Sunday newspaper).

The age of the article does not bother me. We only see .01 percent of the net, and it seems all are whipped into seeing the same .01 percent.

Point I was trying to make is that nowadays people are afraid to link to anything that takes more than 30 sec to grasp and does not give a chuckle. Self censored dumbing down basically.

That's why I hope links like this will keep coming.

Decided to get out of my commenting hibernation to say that I've also noticed what you said. Writing and reading being activities I enjoy, I can't fathom why people got lazy.
