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 Thom is from the Netherlands and we don't have thanksgiving or black friday here. But still, three days no news is really long for a site like this.

But the site is owned by David Adams if I'm not mistaken, who is American. And the site is hosted in the US. Thom is the managing editor.

Edit: And I suppose one of the other editors could post something if they wished, I just figured the team as a whole was taking the week off since many of them are from here.

What you're trying to say is "The non-US editors are slacking off" ;)

A lot of people say this is what OSNews is - lot's of people whoring for Apple and Microsoft.

* My analysis tells me the complainers are the biggest corporate whores.
