In Bit Rot, Douglas Coupland reflects on digital and intellectual entropy — and missing cigarettes

Early in his new book, Douglas Coupland explains that “bit rot” is “a term used in digital archiving that describes the way digital files of any sort spontaneously (and quickly) decompose.” He borrowed the term as a title for his new collection of fiction and non-fiction as a description of “the way my brain has been feeling since 2000, as I shed older and weaker neurons and connections and create and enhance new and unexpected ones.”
