Synopsis

On the morning of Monday, April 3, 2000, Josh Harris woke to the knowledge that he was about to lose everything. Harris, the man Time magazine called 'The Warhol of the Web was reduced to the role of helpless spectator as the Nasdaq index collapsed like a house of cards, and his personal fortune dwindled from 85 million dollars...to 70 million...to 20... to nothing.



If the mania attending the last six months of 1999 is hard to completely recall, it's because when the crash came the events, dreams and expectations of those few brief years were swept away with near Biblical inclemency: just more than a decade later they seem shrouded in a kind of pre-Millennial mist; might never have happened. How easy to forget that at the end of 1999, the world seemed to be spinning off its axis.



In Moondust Andrew Smith looked at the lives of the Moonwalkers, how their exploits helped shape an era and how the era left its mark on them. In Totally Wired, Andrew Smith looks at the dotcom bubble and examines its lasting legacy for both its players, and for the 21stCentury.
