Story:

Po Bronson is a writer connected with Wired, a magazine that is very twenty-first century.His style is direct and slap-in-face.He has been associated with the so-called Silicon Valley in course of number of assignments.He recounts his amazing experiences in this very readable book.He describes the culture of the San Francisco bay area,the de facto silicon country.Here work is life.You work, hence you are.The somewhat shocking title,along with a graphic picture is all about this man whose name is not revealed.This typical Silicon Boy roams his office in the buff,while working at his latest software job.There is David Filo,co-founder of Yahoo!,who sometimes sleeps under his desk.There are other Valley stereotypes too in the book.


However the best part of this thin volume for me,and probably for all indians is the amazing story of Sabeer Bhatia.It brings tears to one's eyes to read about this young man from Bangalore,who changed the infotech industry forever,with Hotmail.His arrival at Stanford with $25,his job with Apple,HIS hotmail and finally the deal with Bill Gates are all stuff of dreams.


Must read for any techno-buff and Baby Sabeers!
