To Live and Die in LA

“I’ve collected hundreds of rejection slips from agents, producers, and studios. Recently, all this changed. I wrote an article last year called “Hacking Las Vegas” (Wired 10.09), and the next thing I know I’m being approached to turn it into a movie starring Spacey…. But I’ve heard rumors that have made me question my confidence – whispers of a dirty little industry practice that has brought me here to Utah on a mission both personal and journalistic.|I’ve been tipped to the network of semisecret cyberhallways, called tracking boards, that are open only to the most elite power players in the industry….They may seem innocuous at first glance, but the boards are where a writer meets his fate.” Ben MezrichTo Live and Die in LAWired)
