Description : It’s the new economy. Enron is a reliable energy company, Pets.com has a bright future ahead of it, and the world is chirping with the sound of modems handshaking across the World Wide Web. In the heyday of the dotcom boom, Chris Jung moves to Austin to find himself. Unfortunately, between his useless philosophy degree and lackluster high-tech skills, he finds himself to be a bike messenger for startups that are throwing weekly beer bashes, talking about going IPO and spending wads of capital though they can’t quite say exactly what it is they do. When Chris is assigned to run deliveries for an obscure tech firm, he learns that the fate of all existence hangs in the balance and is recruited to assist in its salvation. It doesn’t come with stock options or health benefits, but Chris can’t resist the opportunity to be a part of something profound. In the process, he hopes to find existential meaning and possibly a desk job. It’s the ‘90s, so anything is possible.
