Overview

Technology professionals, former employees of failed Internet start-ups, downsized corporate workers, and entrepreneurs eager to avoid mistakes of the recent past will be captivated by this humorous and poignant account of the human cost of the dot.com rise and fall. In the sequel to their acclaimed and successful NetSlaves: Tales of Working the Web, the authors profile the people affected by the rise and fall of Internet companies and where they are today. The coverage in this collection of post-dot.com experiences includes the "survivalists", who made it through the storm intact and continue to work in the industry; the "neo-luddites", who have shunned the Internet forever; the "vigilantes", who are screaming for justice for their mistreatment; and many others. By revealing the most absurd moments of "the bubble" and what really happened to the people displaced by the death of the New Economy, this volume is essential reading for anyone who wants to know what these events mean for the future of the Internet industry.
