I really wish no introduction were necessary for Douglas Coupland. This artist/author/etc. is behind the term “Generation X”, a plethora of great reads, and, last we checked, was helping to plug the Pearl in an advertising campaign. In his latest effort, “JPod” – a novel generally based on the innerworkings of a Vancouver-based games development company, Coupland namechecks the BlackBerry a few times throughout (like the above shot taken from p. 17). This is just one of those “hey, look what we found” kind of posts. Oh, and check out the JPod website – pretty rad.
