Just some quick notes about Douglas Couplands novel jpod. A sort of sequel to microserfs - the mustread for anyone involved with software development. jpod is about a group of game developers stuck in the jpod which is some kind of cubicle area at a video game factory. They have been working on this great skating game when one manager decides that the game needs a turtle cause his son loves this other turtle in some other game. It continues like this and is really good entertainment...

I just found out that Canadian TV network CBC will air a TV serie based on the book. "jPod is a one-hour drama series with amusing and evil twists" the site says. Sounds promising - definitley need to get my eyes on this serie. In the meantime I will read Couplands latest - the gum thief.
