Too short of detail to really serve as an object lesson to those who follow in their footsteps.

The pain and puzzlement of its principals as things inexorably fall apart is palpable and saddening.

Audience Reviews for

This was a great documentary, and from someone's who started businesses and worked with others to start theirs, it was all the more interesting to watch them start their "dot com" from the ground up and learn from their mistakes.


In terms of it's historical value, this documentary is very good in documenting the whole startup boom, unfortunately I just couldn't keep that interested in the subjects they had chosen.
