This documentary is about the technological, cultural, commercial and social revolution that has drastically and fundamentally changed our lives forever; this is a story in which 20-year-olds become overnight billionaires, create, destroy and re-create an immense amount of wealth in a mere ten years. The men and women who made it possible come forward to speak on the subject in this documentary.

The founders of eBay, Yahoo, Amazon, Netscape, Google and many others tell amazing stories of how, in ten short years, the Internet took over our lives. These extraordinary men and women tell us how they went from being computer obsessed nerds to being 21st-century visionaries in merely a decade. And, also how they made untold billions along the way!

The style of the story-telling is very anecdotal and personal. With first-hand testimony from the people that matter, a story is told that has all the excitement of a thriller — full of battles and back-stabbing, moments of genius and moments of sheer hilarity.

Download is hosted by technology journalist John Heileman, whose edgy and combative style enthralls and captivates the audience changing their outlook towards internet forever!
