doing a talk to promote his new book. yay!
but recently he's really lost it
was the only book of his I have not liked, i've read his new one 'the gum theif' and really enjoyed it but it does seem to be written on douglas coupland autopilot
in the post today.i hope its better than jpod.
it's my favourite.

JPod was a little like autopilot, but it was still good.
I still haven't read Microserfs though.
