Chapter 4 of _Big Data_: "Greg Linden was 24 years old in 1997 when he took time off from his PhD research in artificial intelligence at the University of Washington to work at a local internet startup selling books online."

Hey, I know that guy, too!

Who the fuck wrote this book? I don't know _those_ guys.

Altho I will note that they are incredibly repetitive, and their descriptions of "how things were" vs. how they are changing and what that implies are kinda thin, and maybe not what I would consider particularly, um, recognizable.

But they sure interviewed people I know when they wrote this book.
