Yet Another Dot Com Documentary
from the a-bit-late-to-the-party dept
We’ve already discussed the ridiculous number of “dotcomentaries” coming out or in production. Well, here’s yet another documentary about dot coms, but this one is late to the party – in more ways than one. Not only is it coming out after a bunch of these other ones, but it also covers things when everything was good. It sounds like a lot of the quotes in the movie are really funny with the benefit of hindsight as the comedic edge. The people sound absolutely full of themselves. It’s a bit funny, though, that the movie in some ways is a “dot com” story of its own. The money for the movie came from rich dot commers (perhaps that’s why it makes them out to be brilliant visionaries), but has been scaling back quite a bit over the past year. It was originally a three hour series following 12 companies. Then it was a two hour movie following eight companies. Now, it’s just a one hour special covering three startups. Might be worth watching for the laughs.
