Extra Life, about a boy  AUG 13 2000

Extra Life, about a boy growing up with computers, was one of my favorite books from the past couple years. The author, David Bennahum, used to publish an electronic newsletter called MEME. I say "used to publish" because I'm on the list and haven't received a new issue in well over a year. Luckily for us, there's still plenty to read in the MEME archives.

Here's a review of Extra Life by David Hudson, of the sadly-defunct Rewired. Another review of the book from the NY Times.
