Summary
The third book to be released as part of the "Writers in Residence" series is written by Canadian cultural literary giant Douglas Coupland. Coupland takes readers on a web surfing-inspired ride through Alcatel-Lucent: one of the largest global telecommunications companies in the world. Coupland, with "Magnum" photographer Olivia Arthur, reports from inside Alcatel's faceless corporate offices and wire-laden science labs, writing in his inimitably playful and insightful way about the wider cultural implications of the Internet and the affect Alcatel's information technology has on each of our lives and the way we live. A non-fiction spin of "Microserfs" meets "J-Pod, " here comes Coupland's wildly funny meditation on the Internet, its future and our possible future within it, in ways we would only hope for and expect from Douglas Coupland

Summary
Coupland examines Alcatel-Lucent, which is one of the largest global telecommunications companies in the world, although most people have never heard of it. He tours the offices and labs in the United States, France, Canada, and China, and discusses the influence that the Internet in general, and Alcatel in particular, has on the way we live.
