Genre: History, Tech/Gaming, Documentary

The insanely true story of the epic browser wars told by the really smart people who were there. This mostly scripted series weaves in documentary elements that help tell the true inside story of the Internet's formative years.

The "weaving in" part is a bit weird, but after watching the first episode I still recommend this show. Watch it (or the linked trailer) if you like the 90s, the early internet, nerds, Silicon Valley, VCs and the dotcom bubble.

A Conspiracy To Kill IE6

The bittersweet consequence of YouTube’s incredible growth is that so many stories will be lost underneath all of the layers of new paint. This is why I wanted to tell the story of how, ten years ago, a small team of web developers conspired to kill IE6 from inside YouTube and got away with it.
