Several People Are Typing

Calvin Kasulke

Is it still WFH when you’re now just binary code? Whilst working on a spreadsheet for a New York-based PR firm, Gerald has his consciousness uploaded into his company’s Slack channel. He posts for help, but his colleagues assume it’s an elaborate joke to exploit the new working-from-home policy, and now that Gerald’s productivity is through the roof, his bosses are only too happy to let him work from … wherever he says he is. Faced with the looming abyss of a disembodied life online, Gerald enlists co-worker Pradeep to care for his body and Slackbot, the service’s AI assistant, to help him navigate his new digital reality. But when Slackbot discovers a world (and an empty body) outside the app, will it hijack a ride into the ‘real’ world?

Meanwhile, Gerald’s co-workers are scrambling to stem a company PR catastrophe like no other, their CEO suspects someone is sabotaging his office furniture, and if Gerald gets to work from home all the time, why can’t everyone?

Hilarious, irreverent, and wholly original, Several People Are Typing is the perfect remedy for any idle fingers waiting to doomscroll: a satire of both the virtual office and contemporary life, and a perfect antidote to the way we live #now.
