The New New Thing – Michael Lewis

I was hoping to read more about how Jim Clark got to that new new thing i.e Netscape et al. Rather, the book is more focused on his obsession of running a boat called Hyperion with computers. More interesting was to learn of two Indian’s – Pavan Nigam and Kittu Kolluri, who played key roles in the interactive tv project and Healtheon. The book gives a peak into the genius of Jim Clark, his eccentricities and the underlying subtext of wanting to overcome all odds, at all costs. Revenge by success! And by God did he have his revenge.
