The Future is Now

Douglas Coupland

Douglas Coupland’s new book entitled Kitten Clone: Inside Alcatel-Lucent will be released later this month. The book has been described as non-fiction spin of Microserfs meets JPod and focuses on a rather faceless company (Alcatel-Lucent) that serves as a custodian to the internet.

“The thing about the future is that it can be a lot like the present.”
—Douglas Coupland
