The history offered by this over 500-page document is astounding. Regis website rivalries, the relationship with the utterly brilliant (and doomed) Julie K, the transition to college, much learning and unlearning, and the many strange personalities that walked and shaped the path alongside many of us. It's all there, lots of it unsavory, all of it sadly relevant.
THE CORPORATE HISTORY OF THE DUMP, IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY: In 1997, THE DUMP was launched on lpage, a free guestbook service, and linked to the inexplicably popular rb website IMAGINARY SANITATION. Somehow lpage became a part of Lycos/HTMLGear, which was, at the turn of the century, a massively successful search engine valued at $12B. Just before the boom busted, Lycos was sold to Spain's Terra for $5.2B. After the bust, it was sold to South Korea's Daum for $105m. Lycos struggles on--they offer 3GB of email storage!--and THE DUMP struggles with it.
