UK Writer about the internet - Paul Carr

Bringing Nothing To The Party: True Confessions of a New Media Whore is the painfully true story of how Paul Carr attempted to become a dot com billionaire and in doing so lost his reputation, the love of his life and very nearly his freedom.

I've just finished this 'novel' and really enjoyed the 'insight' into this world I teach about. Scary actually - how volitile it is. It was relieving to see Carr has given up 'drinking rum' as his alcoholism was tedious. I will be following his blog. I had some good laughs. I'll also be using the 'story' of facebook and the million dollar webpage in my classes for a long time. Thanks Paul.
