Start Down

by Eleanor Burgess

A San Francisco programmer latches onto an idea for a startup that will automate some of the work teachers do in a classroom. But as the idea begins to take off, it becomes clear that his new company may threaten his fiancee's job. Start Down takes a fresh and funny look at recent economic trends and how they hit home.
