Hackoff – The Blook, Part II
A few weeks back, I posted about a new blook (book delivered in single episodes via blog) called Hackoff.com – An Historic Murder Mystery Set in the Internet Bubble and Rubble, by Tom Evslin. A few weeks into it, and I’m hooked. It’s:
– complete and total brain candy, or mental floss as Brad calls it
– a great 2 minute break in the middle of the day (episodes are delivered once a day during the week)
– a very entertaining reminder about some of the wacky things that went on back in the Internet heyday
– a good look into some of the processes that go on behind the scenes in taking a company public
If you haven’t started the blook yet and want to give it a try, you can catch up on all of the first episodes and subscribe to the new ones here. You can also preorder a hardcover copy of the book here on Amazon.com.
