Mark Stephens under the pseudonym Robert X. Cringely, wrote and hosted Nerds 2.0.1: A Brief History of the Internet (1998), a three-hour documentary film, as a sequel to Triumph of The Nerds, Nerds 2.0.1.

This film produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting for PBS chronicles the development of ARPANET, the Internet, the World Wide Web and the dot-com bubble of the mid and late 1990s. It was a futurist film given that it predicted the dot-com bubble burst long before it actually happened. Stephen Segaller, the series director later turned this documentary into a book of the same title.
