Adam Wishart has written the best book about the dot.com lunacy yet and now Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing has picked up on it. He says it reads like “an early Gibson novel”. High praise. The book’s called Leaving Reality Behind (co-written with Regula Bochsler) and it’s not your standard airport business book – involving, as it does, not only the usual cast of feckless dot.com chancers and witless bankers but also a group of Swiss Dadaist artist-anarchists, a cast of thousands of pissed-off media hackers, the domain name system… and Bill Gross. It really should be a movie. Declaration: Adam is a friend of mine.
