Fact or Fiction:
I've been following the trials and tribulations of Josh Harris for almost two decades.  Josh broke new ground in several Internet domains and it was never quite clear as to whether his antics (for example live-streaming a co-living warehouse years before MTV's Real World) were one grand publicity stunt, he was trying to push the boundaries of technology, or was batshit crazy.  If you want to look at an important, but not widely known history of the Internet, you'll really enjoy "Totally Wired: The Rise and Fall of Josh Harris and The Great Dotcom Swindle" by Andrew Smith.  (Amazon Link)
