The name Brendan Tobey is based on my friends Brendan McGinley and Matt Tobey. Tobey is a little like Tobey, but it's also based on my impression of what the guy from the old WWTD blog would be in real life.

Oz is not based on a real woman except to say in the early days of Facebook, I met an australian women who told me she did let men watch her shower for money online. Of course, Oz changes during the book so that's also hard to answer.(less)

Notes from the Internet Apocalypse by Wayne Gladstone
"Surprisingly this piece was witty, sexy, smart, snarky, weird, hilarious with accurate, biting social commentary on today's media addicted masses to boot. He nailed our Orwellian nightmare and devolution of communication to hieroglyphic dank memes..." Read more of this review »
Notes from the Internet Apocalypse by Wayne Gladstone
"Not the ending I expected but an interesting journey there. As someone who's job is to craft communications which all go out over the Internet, it is hard to know what I would do if it went away. The world would surely still turn. But if we went b..." Read more of this review »

“Don’t you realize the Internet is just a way for millions of sad people to be completely alone together?”
Wayne Gladstone, Notes from the Internet Apocalypse

“There has not been a piece of technology designed to save labor that has not increased labor. Word processors allow you to do what your secretary used to do for you. The Internet, BlackBerries, iPhones, yes they keep you tethered, but that's not the main problem. It's that along with increasing personal productivity, they increase the expectation of productivity. It no longer becomes a bonus to do the work of one and a half men, but the norm. And then when everyone’s working at one hundred and fifty percent capacity, they can fire a third of the workforce and still maintain output.”
Wayne Gladstone, Notes from the Internet Apocalypse

“They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and I guess for some, that’s true. After all, pain makes you flinch. Your fingers form a fist, and that fist can become tighter and harder with each indignity suffered. Eventually, that fist might even get strong enough to punch down walls. But if you need your hand for something other than violence, if you want to unfurl those fingers to caress a loved one or comfort someone in need, and can’t, well then, you’re broken.”
