Douglas Coupland’s vision of the near future

Douglas Coupland’s been getting a lot of media coverage for his Massey lecture “Player One: What is To Become of Us?” which he’s currently in the process of delivering across Canada. Check out this interesting (and funny) interview about Player One between Coupland and a journalist from the Ottawa Citizen.

The CBC has also produced this short trailer for Player One.

Coupland’s also been getting people talking with two recent pieces published in The Globe and Mail, the first “A Glossary of New Terms for a Messed-Up Future” and, the second, “A radical pessimist’s guide to the next 10 years.”  Listen to this interview about the latter piece that Coupland did this week with NPR’s show All Things Considered.
