Generation X author pushes the Pearl

Comments

coupland.jpgFew authors become the voice of a generation. Douglas Coupland‘s not just the voice of a generation, he created the generation. The author of “Generation X”, the book that coined the term, as well as other pop-culture mainstays “Microserfs” and “All Families Are Psychotic” (amongst other works) has been busy promoting his latest effort “J Pod” but took time to talk Pearl, it seems.

A visit to various web sites has seen Coupland’s solemn mug promoting the Pearl, and a visit to BlackBerryPearl.com’s “Life” section has an introspective review of Coupland’s day-to-day Pearl use. Watching a trailer for his new film “Everything’s Gone Green”, voice dialing, and Google Maps are all part of his daily Pearl party. Maybe we’re in the company of the device of our generation.

    Coupland is responsible for defining Generation X as such, but he did not coin the term. He borrowed it from sources which, in turn, had borrowed it from others. The term goes back to a book written in the early 1960s by a couple of Brits to describe the disaffected youth of their era, who, ironcially, were actually Baby Boomers.
