The only thing I remember about this book, nine years on, was that one of the characters built a "hug machine" based on Temple Grandin's design and all the programmers were into it. (Which is... not even that clever or interesting an idea, tbh.) A hug machine sounded pretty appealing to me, though, as did a career in software development.

Crazy but relatable. Glorious pop culture fest for nerds.

I've really enjoyed some of Coupland's books. But I actively disliked every.single.character. In this one, and disliked the literary device of switching between the different POV's.
