Holden Caulfield; Proto Geek

I got a deeply odd email from Amazon yesterday:
Dear Customer,
We've noticed that customers who have purchased "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger also purchased books by Selim Aissi. For this reason, you might like to know that Selim Aissi's "Security in Wireless Networks And Mobile Platforms" will be released soon. You can pre-order your copy by following the link below.

This initially seemed bonkers to me, but on reflection I can imagine Holden Caulfield, if he'd been born nearly half a century later, hanging with Coupland's geeks (and slackers).

One for the grupo when JPod comes up perhaps?
