Rolling Stone story about Justin Frankel, inventor of WinAmp and Gnutella and a continual thorn in AOL's side.
Good article but this is a bit iffy: "With Gnutella, Napster became almost irrelevant. "
"Then he looks under his Porsche, his VW van, his Swiss military truck, his Go Big scooter, his gutted Audi. He pokes his head behind a hacked Xbox, pulsing the word SeXbox onto a forty-eight-inch flat screen."
100 million sheesh.. this is what happens when geeks get rick... must be nice..
Not a thorn anymore. He resigned.
