My neighbor, a 92 year old man, came to my door tonight and asked, “You still doing that Internet stuff?”
I told him I was, and he handed me a DVD – “Startup.com”.
I had never heard of it, but he told me it was his Grandson’s and that I should watch it. It’s now 2am – I’ve been watching the movie for 90 minutes – and I can’t go to sleep. I must see the ending.
It’s the story of a Dot-Com in the late 90’s. It has all of the greed and jealousy and pettiness that I experienced in startups. Even some of the lavishness.
It’s really well-filmed. I may just like it because I can identify so closely with it – but I think it may appeal to a wider audience.
Of course – I DO know how it ends.
