Description

The third book to be released as part of the Writers in Residence series is written by Canadian cultural literary giant Douglas Coupland. Coupland takes readers on a web surfing-inspired ride through Alcatel-Lucent: one of the largest global telecommunications companies in the world. Coupland, with Magnum photographer Olivia Arthur, reports from inside Alcatel s faceless corporate offices and wire-laden science labs, writing in his inimitably playful and insightful way about the wider cultural implications of the Internet and the affect Alcatel s information technology has on each of our lives and the way we live. A non-fiction spin of Microserfs meets J-Pod, here comes Coupland s wildly funny meditation on the Internet, its future and our possible future within it, in ways we would only hope for and expect from Douglas Coupland."
