Check out the site, and be sure to watch the documentary March 30 @ 10:00PM on PBS. The PBS website will have the documentary for sale, but it's not available yet.

It will be on tomorrow night and earlier than 3/31 as well. It first aired last night. Here is the pertinent info (no doubt poorly formatted::
Life in the Valley: CODE RUSH
CODE RUSH takes a dramatic, inside look at living and working in Silicon Valley. The one-hour documentary follows bright and quirky Netscape Communications engineersas they pursue a revolutionary venture to save their company. Through the TV program's verité style, viewers see human and technological dramas unfold in the collision between science, engineering, code, and commerce.

This KTEH co-production was in association with Winton duPoint Films, and will be broadcast on March 2nd at 8:00 p.m., and again on March 6th at 12:56 a.m. (set your VCR).
As a person who works closely with the lovely and talented Tara Hernandez, I suggest checking it out.

I know everyone's excited about Code Rush in the US, but does anyone know if a UK TV station has bought the rights to broadcast it in the UK ?
Not all of us have access to US PBS you know :-)
