 Enter Edgar Scott,  author of the dystopian novel 418: I Am a Teapot.

Edgar Scott is an economist-turned computer scientist. For over 20 years, he served as a Senior Database Administrator and Development Operations Team Manager in the crypto-currency, financial and medical industries. His experiences have taught him that people’s narrow beliefs very often imprison them in a life they don’t want to live, hence the themes in 418. Born in Houston but brought up in Canada, Scott now resides in South Florida with his wife, where he explores the true cost of technology on humanity in the future.
