You've read their books, now see the movie
This year's Sundance Film Festival includes "The Technical Writer."
"A man who has grown weary of society over the years spends most of his time locked up in his house writing computer manuals, only coming outside to buy food. But his wild neighbors eventually convince him to open up, and when he does, he discovers a part of himself he thought no longer existed."
While I'm not sure what part of himself he discovers, it is interesting that the protagonist is male -- in reality the field is largely dominated by women. In any event, see it when it is general release, because you know that you'll be hearing about it from co-workers for the next few months. And if you haven't seen it, they'll think you spend your time locked up in your house writing computer manuals, only coming outside to buy food.
