Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

how it all began: Ev (who taught himself how to code) sold Blogger to Google for a ridiculous sum and thus became Silicon Valley-famous; Noah recognised him as his neighbour and gets Ev to invest in Odeo, which turns out to be a bittersweet decision because Ev later takes his CEO role from him; Jack cold emails Ev and snags a job at Odeo that way; Biz quits Google to join his old boss' (Ev's) new startup
