Publisher's Summary

Jon Ronson looks at how a group of Montreal tech wizards — with Fabian at their helm — gave the world free, easily accessible online porn. But what happened to the porn community in the San Fernando Valley as a result? Twenty years ago, a boy named Fabian had an idea. Because of Fabian’s idea, millions of people behave a little differently when nobody's watching them. Lives were mangled, fortunes made.

    "Great"

    Fascinating ascent into the world of free porn tech companies headquartered in... Canada? Ronson always brilliant. More!

    "Classic Jon Ronson in a new way."

    I really enjoyed this. I should however stipulate at this point that I'm a massive Jon Ronson fan and have enjoyed all of his books to date.

    This differs from previous Audible offerings in that it' comprises a narrative from Jon interspersed with interviews with people rather than accounts of interviews. Jon's manner is very light but his questions are intelligent and interesting. You don't feel that anyone is being set up to make a fool of themselves and as a result he teases out genuine and interesting responses to questions.

    In terms of subject matter - yes, it's about porn, but really it's about how a significant change to an industry affects ordinary (well...) people.

    It's free (at the time of writing) so if you like Jon Ronson or Louis Theroux, you honestly can't lose with this. I look forward to paying actual money for future instalments!

    "More please..."

    Great start. But how long do I have to wait for more?

    Classic Jon Ronson territory.

    "FakeAgent and FakeTaxi?"

    For the record, Fabian has never bought FakeAgent or FakeTaxi simply because I have never sold my sites.. I have absolutely no idea why this is stated in this interview. My site FakeTaxi had not even launched by the time Fabian sold Manwin. Comical really...
