Ondi Timoner’s (DiG!) insider’s view of the heady days of the internet revolution 1.0 focuses upon web visionary Josh Harris. A king in the hothouse world of NYC’s Silicon Alley at the turn of the millennium, Harris devised an art-technology experiment in which scores of people moved into an underground bunker and had every moment of their lives videoed and broadcast. Anticipating YouTube and countless other online interactions, the project’s — and Harris’s — rise and fall offer a cautionary tale for our increasingly virtual future.

"The Internet explosion of the late 1990s, as embodied in the alarming, shambling, brilliant person of Josh Harris, an entrepreneur, artist and fairly messed-up guy... fascinating."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
