The story of the meteoric rise and epic bust of the 1990s dot-com revolution is almost too wild to be believed.
The sprawling Valley of the Boom, a six-part series from National Geographic, tells the tale of this short but deeply consequential era in an innovative mix of drama and documentary. It tracks Netscape’s early battle with Microsoft for internet browser dominance; the founding of the first major social networking site, theglobe.com, in a Cornell University dorm room; and much more. Join us for a special two-episode screening followed by a lively conversation with co-founder of theglobe.com Stephan Paternot, joined by stars Bradley Whitford, Steve Zahn, and Lamorne Morris, along with showrunner and creator Matthew Carnahan.
