Being Digital

When I moved to Seattle, I revisited the 12-year-ago publication of Microserfs, Douglas Coupland's take on software culture. Published right around the same time was Nicholas Negroponte's Being Digital, which The Laboratorium revisits to reveal some amazing predictions and blunders. [via]

Microserfs, for me, was my favourite book of all time as it just hit the right notes - I've re-read it a few times over the years and, despite some of its datedness, still relates to moderen net culture. It reads like a blog (before blogs became a part of our collective net consciousness). I enjoyed 'J-Pod' more though, just for its humour (in its Grand Theft Auto-esque tone).
