DVD: We Live In Public

Compelling documentary film charting a tumultuous period in the life of
internet pioneer Josh Harris.

Consistently ahead of the pack Harris made a fortune in the mid nineties thanks to the .com boom and embarked on a series of bizarre projects that saw him fritter most of it away.

A Big Brother style community was set up in a bunker under New York City which filmed the exploits of a somewhat questionable group of people 24/7. It didn't end well.

Harris then decided to broadcast his and his girlfriend's life together for all to log on and see, the results are interesting to say the least.

A remarkable film about a remarkable man this deserves to find an audience and the mere fact that you are reading this review goes a long way to proving some of Harris' theories.

Everyone with any interest in the internet (that means you) should check it out.
