Microserfs

In de categorie “te lezen”: Microserfs van Douglas Coupland. Een niet te onderschatten excerpt valt reeds te lezen via Wired.

“This morning, just after 11:00, Michael locked himself in his office and he won’t come out.

Bill (Bill!) sent Michael this totally wicked flame-mail from hell on the e-mail system – and he just wailed on a chunk of code Michael had written. Using the Bloom County-cartoons-taped-on-the-door index, Michael is certainly the most sensitive coder in Building Seven – not the type to take criticism easily. Exactly why Bill would choose Michael of all people to wail on is confusing. We figured it must have been a random quality check to keep the troops in line. Bill’s so smart.

Bill is wise.
Bill is kind.
Bill is benevolent.
Bill, Be My Friend…Please!”
