#filmlog: Code Rush, 2000 - ★★★★


A fascinating part of Internet history. As someone who's a huge Firefox fan, it's amazing to see how it all started - and how quickly the story of Netscape ended.

What makes this so compelling is its time-frame. Released very shortly after the events unfolded, even the narration is still blithely ignorant of the things to come. Google and Amazon still in their infancy, Facebook or Twitter not even a blip in anyone's imagination, the landscape of Silicon Valley still appeared very differently and all that lay ahead was the promise of more opportunity.
