  • "Nach "Backup" ist "Upload" der zweite Cyberthriller von Cory Doctorow: Art Berry, Konsumforscher, ist in einem zweiten, geheimen Leben Mitglied einer durch Internetkontakte entstandenen Gruppe von Computerfreaks. Die Gruppe hat es sich zum Ziel gesetzt, eine neue Nation zu bilden, eine Nation, die nur im Internet existiert. Doch dieser Plan erweist sich bald als lebensgefährlich ... Cory Doctorow ist Schriftsteller, Journalist, Internet-Aktivist. Er wurde 1971 in Toronto geboren und lebt heute im weltweiten Netz."
  • "Art is a member of the Eastern Standard Tribe, a secret society bound together by a sleep schedule. Around the world, those who wake and sleep on East Coast time find common cause with one another, cooperating, conspiring, to help each other out, coordinated by a global network of Wi-Fi, instant messaging, ubiquitous computing, and a shared love of Manhattan-style bagels. Or perhaps not. Art is, after all, in the nuthouse. He was put there by a conspiracy of his friends and loved ones, fellow travelers from EST hidden in the bowels of Greenwich Mean Time, spies masquerading as management consultants who strive to mire Europe in oatmeal-thick bureaucracy. Eastern Standard Tribe is a story of madness and betrayal, of society after the End of Geography, of the intangible factors that define us as a species, as a tribe, as individuals. Scathing, bitter, and funny, EST examines the immutable truths of time, of sunrise and sunset of societies smashed and rebuilt in the storm of instant, ubiquitous communication. --publisher's description."@en
