About this Book

Hap, who works in the periphery of the software industry, has a gorgeous girlfriend and a great apartment in San Francisco, but he’s just learned that the owner plans to sell his building, and he’s afraid that moving out of the city will mean the end of his love affair. Called to a gathering of friends he’s known from college and from jobs in Silicon Valley, he has to decide whether saving his apartment and his love affair is worth mortgaging his soul as the newest employee of Dreedle, a fiendish corporation devoted to selling out the privacy of every individual to the highest bidder. How They Scored mixes speculation about the loss of privacy in the 21st century with a journey through the beds of the bohemians of San Francisco and Austin, Serbian fashion models, Las Vegas wheeler-dealers, and a “landscape artist” whose life work is a hole in the ground in the middle of the desert.
