A fascinating and hilarious expose of how a group of young opportunists, chancers and geniuses found instant fame and fortune by messing about on the web. And one man's attempt to follow in their footsteps.

Having covered the first dot com boom, and founded a web-to-print publishing business during the second one, Paul counts many of the leading Internet entrepreneurs amongst his closest friends. These friendships mean he doesn't just attend their product launches and press conferences and speak at their events, but also gets invited to their ultra-exclusive networking events, and gets drunk at their parties.

Paul has enjoyed this bizarre world of excess without having to live in it. To help the moguls celebrate raising millions of pounds of funding without having to face the wrath of the venture capitalists himself. But in 2006, Paul decided he didn't want to be a spectator any more. He had been harbouring a great dot com project of his own and decided it was time to do something about it.

Here's what you say about us...

Paul Carr is a writer and journalist, specialising in media and popular culture. A former Guardian media columnist, he also edited various publications and founded numerous businesses with varying degrees of abysmal failure. After getting fired from every job he'd ever had - including at least two where he was his own boss - he realised it was easier to write about other people's success than to have any of his own. As the co-founder of two Internet companies he knows the world of Internet moguls both inside and out.
