Former editor and writer for Wired John Heileman shares his insights into the development of the Internet. This is no softball show praising Al Gore and the people who came after him.
The series gives it to you "warts and all" and does not hold back the punches on how things have developed so far. The last show I watched discussed the development of search and told how Excite turned down the chance to buy Google foe a million dollars.
Browser wars, the bubble have all been topics so far. The show can also be seen online.
"Download: The True Story of the Internet is about a revolution -- the technological, cultural, commercial and social revolution that has radically changed our lives," is how the Discovery describes it.
It makes for a great history lesson for people new to the industry and answers some of the urban myths surrounding our industry as well. Put the time aside and watch them, you will be glad you did.
