No Better Time

The Brief, Remarkable Life of Danny Lewin, the Genius Who Transformed the Internet

No Better Time tells of a young, driven mathematical genius who wrote a set of algorithms that would create a faster, better Internet.

Danny Lewin's brilliant but brief life is largely unknown because, until now, those closest to him have guarded their memories and quietly mourned their loss. For Lewin was almost certainly the first victim of 9/11, stabbed to death at age 31 while trying to overpower the terrorists who would eventually fly American Flight 11 into the World Trade Center.
