1990s, Douglas Coupland's original website featured a quick time video CLOSE PERSONAL FRIEND. During the days of slow dial-up, it took an entire afternoon to watch the 24 minute film. When his 2.0 website launched, CLOSE PERSONAL FRIEND disappeared. Thanks to the magic of YouTube, it's back. Worth a watch. The ideas still hold up. His last comments seem prophetic of the MySpace phenomena.
Coupland talks about plastic.
