Douglas Coupland: Unclassy

The old class definitions are becoming obsolete. Here are some new ones for a new era.

“This past spring, I was interviewing assembly-line workers in a suburban Shanghai internet router factory. When I asked workers what class they belonged to, they asked me what I meant and I said that I’m from North America, where most people will describe themselves as middle class.”

Doug has new meanings for new words like: “Blank-collar workers”, “Detroitus”,  “Chinosis”, etc.  So, read on, and be the first on your block to use these words and impress your friends.
