No Better Time

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

No Better Time tells of a young, driven mathematical genius who wrote a set of algorithms that would create a faster, better Internet. It's the story of a beautiful friendship between a loud, irreverent student and his soft-spoken MIT professor, of a husband and father who spent years struggling to make ends meet only to become a billionaire almost overnight with the success of Akamai Technologies, the Internet content delivery network he cofounded with his mentor.Danny Lewin's brilliant but brief life is largely unknown because, until now, those closest to him have guarded their memories and quietly mourned their loss. For Lewin was almost certainly the first victim of 9/11, stabbed to death at age 31 while trying to overpower the terrorists who would eventually fly American Flight 11 into the World Trade centre. But ironically it was 9/11 that proved the ultimate test for Lewin's vision- while phone communication failed and web traffic surged as never before, the critical news and government sites that relied on Akamai- and the technology pioneered by Danny Lewin- remained up and running.
