Synopsis

Examines the effect the web is having on our society, as seen through the eyes of "the greatest Internet pioneer you've never heard of" Josh Harris. Documenting his tumultuous life for more than a decade to create a riveting, cautionary tale of what to expect as the virtual world inevitably takes control of our lives. Harris, often called the "Warhol of the Web," founded the first Internet television network during the infamous dot-com boom of the 1990s. Proving that we willingly trade our privacy for the connection and recognition we all deeply desire. Through his experiments, including a six-month stint living with his girlfriend under 24-hour electronic surveillance which led to his mental collapse, Harris demonstrates the price we pay for living in public.
