5.0 out of 5 stars Read this to understand where we are, 9 Oct. 2012

Whatever your knowledge of or interest in the early on-line world and the press coverage that highlighted the huge financial gains and losses that the early pioneers enjoyed and suffered, read this book. My perception of those times was primitive; I had no idea of the creativity that existed (albeit more than a little weird), the pretty seedy material that was peddled on line and the lifestyles off line; how many people were involved, and just how close what they were doing 15 years ago came to be what we all accept and take part in now.

This beautifully crafted book leads you through the creative, financial and personal stories which when told in parallel make a fascinating read. Andrew Smith makes a complex story very understandable and having met a large number of the pioneers he gets into the psyche of those involved.

Perhaps of all the aspects that the book covers, it is how far ahead of his time Josh Harris, the main character, was with his online vision and creations that has intrigued me most. So many elements of his creative mind helped form a huge part of everyday life as we now know it. With us having come to live so closely to how he envisaged over a decade ago, reading his latest beliefs of where we are heading will keep you thinking long after you close the covers on this book.

If you want to understand where we are, and why, in the wired and wireless world, then buy this book.
