From the Back Cover
‘'My name is Daniel U. I am a bug tester at Microsoft. Lately I've been unable to sleep…'’
Microserfs: a hilarious, fanatically detailed, and oddly moving audiobook about a handful of misfit Microsoft employees who realise they don't have a life and who subsequently become determined to get lives inside the lightning-paced world of high-tech, 1990's American geek culture. Coupland's quirky ensemble "stick a piece of dynamite inside themselves, like a cartoon cat, in the hope that when they reassemble their exploded pieces they will be somebody different."
Coupland gives listeners an intimate, deadly accurate, and very funny view of a way of life that is quickly becoming the dominant way of life: friends, families, and lovers falling through the trap doors of the new electronic order and involved in an engaging, awkward scramble toward love and success in a brave new world.See all Product description

SuperBoo Hoo: A Dot Com Story, and Dot.Bomb: The Inside Story of the First Dot.Com Crash: My Days and Night at an Internet Goliath are both a good read.Read more
