Item Details

They are Microserfs--six code-crunching computer whizzes who spend upward of sixteen hours a day "coding" and eating "flat" foods (food which, like Kraft singles, can be passed underneath closed doors) as they fearfully scan company e-mail to learn whether the great Bill is going to "flame" one of them. But now there's a chance to become innovators instead of cogs in the gargantuan Microsoft machine. The intrepid Microserfs are striking out on their own--living together in a shared digital flophouse as they desperately try to cultivate well-rounded lives and find love amid the dislocated, subhuman whir and buzz of their computer-driven world.

I know Doug wrote this one before Jpod, but I definitely enjoyed the other better than this. Not that Microserfs was bad or anything, but I guess that's just not the timeline that we live in right now, and I'm a 2000 baby.
Still, a fantastic read, and much deeper and more meaningful than the aforesaid.
Read it. And Jpod.

In typical Coupland style, this book is funny in sarcastic ways and keeps me interested in the characters and their strange developing relationship with each other. The story is quirky and intelligent. Excellent read.
