I could, however, be tempted to draw on my JBoss experiences to write a blog entry-format satire of the corporate IT and entrepreneurial world my former colleagues and I came from. Think something along the lines of Lucy Kellaway's Martin Lukes saga in the FT. My time and writing constraints favor an episodic story flow, with the ability to go forward and backward in time and introduce a varied cast of characters, a la the television series "Lost." I see this as being a story in the picaresque genre.
The picaresque novel (Spanish: "picaresca", from "pícaro", for "rogue" or "rascal") is a popular subgenre of prose fiction which is usually satirical and depicts in realistic and often humorous detail the adventures of a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.
Being a lazy academic and person whose professional experience grew out of the collaborative environment of open source (get other people to do your work for you for free!), I welcome story ideas and collaborative suggestions from my readers, by comments or email (nathaliemfATgmailDOTCOM). Let me know which themes and characters you want to hear about.
