Don't Let Them See You

I’ve just finished reading Cory Doctorow’s latest novel, Little Brother. It’s a story about how fragile freedom can be, and the importance of fighting for that freedom. I don’t want to spoil the story by saying much more about the plot or the characters, so I will just let you read it for yourself.

The book is available for purchase or as a Creative Commons licensed free download at craphound.com. I encourage you to grab a copy and read it. It’s worth your time.

Stay Free

Last night, Cory Doctorow was at Borderlands Books in San Francisco promoting his new book, Little Brother.

He spent some time answering questions from the audience on a variety of subjects, from his opinion on the Orphan Works Bill (he is in favor of it) to what is the definition of a young adult (depends on the kid, but generally 12-14 years old). He then read an excerpt from Little Brother, followed by more Q&A and then book signing.

It’s always a treat to hear Cory speak. His enthusiasm for technology and the relationship of technology to social structure is infectious. I heard him read the same except at SF in SF about a year ago. He still reads the story with the same enthusiasm.

If you would like to learn more about Little Brother, or any of Cory’s work, you can find it over on craphound.com.
