Douglas Copeland interview in The Times of London.
The Times of London carried an interview with Douglas Copeland – creator of Generation X.
“WHEN I GOOGLED DOUGLAS Coupland before meeting him, the first result that came up – out of 1,230,000 – was a quote by Coupland about journalists Googling their interview subjects before meeting them.
‘PreGoogle, a writer preparing for an interview had to do genuine research involving paper, libraries, legwork and some dimension of vim,’ went the quote. ‘These days, one merely Googles and goes to the 137th page of results to give the illusion of in-depth investigation.’”
