What people are saying about this book
"Everyone who reads AOL BY GEORGE! will come away
with a deeper sense of what it means to be human in a world increasingly governed by technology
that can often be dehumanizing."
"Here's how a tight group of online pioneers created
a virtual neighborhood which now transcends political, social, and economic strata."
"I'm drawn to books that capture snippets of online
culture and history rather than those that offer snapshots of rapidly changing technology. This
is such a book.. George was an early part of AOL culture, privy to the myriad growing pains of
that unique community, and offers insights into the transition from geek chat 'n download resource
to the key social focus of millions of lives."
"AOL BY GEORGE! Is an intriguing story of the origins
of online service by a pioneer in the trenches."
"Most books you read and forget, some you will remember,
AOL BY GEORGE! is a book I shall always remember."
"A human book dealing with a nerdy subject."
"George's book is not only about electronically mediated
human relationships. It's also about our relationship with the world; perhaps, someday, the galaxy
At the core, I think, it's about expanding our respective world views so that we can see, understand,
respect, accept, embrace, and recognize our power to change, grow, adapt, and win some victory
"AOL BY GEORGE! is a breezy narrative, like Kerouac
online, without drugs and with better grammar."
"George is a pioneer in the discovery and struggles
among physical reality, virtual reality and the soul"
"AOL BY GEORGE! should be required reading for all
would-be entrepreneurs, and certainly for anyone with an ISP account and e-mail! To demystify
a corporate facade by placing a company's evolution in the context of individual lives lived within
an historic continuum is chimichangas with extra salsathe spice of life! Well done!"
