Gina & Rob’s Early Dot-Com Days Together
In early 1997 and throughout the dot-com boom, Gina & Rob worked together at a once-successful Internet start-up, where they met Joseph Lamport.
‘Dinkelmann’s Rules‘, his first novel, is a hilarious look at the early days in which he aptly named a character “Tina” — who bares a striking resemblance to someone else mentioned on this page. Thanks Joe!
