Selected Essays on Technology, Creativity, Copyright, and the Future of the FutureStreaming Audiobook - 2015
Hailed by Bruce Sterling as a "political activist, gizmo freak, junk collector, programmer, entrepreneur, and all-around Renaissance geek," Cory Doctorow is the web's most celebrated high-tech pop-culture maven. Content is the first collection of Doctorow's infamous articles, essays, and polemics. Here's why Microsoft should stop treating its customers as criminals (through relentless digital-rights management), how America chose copyright and Happy Meal toys over jobs, why Facebook is taking a faceplant, how Wikipedia is a poor cousin of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and, of course, why free e-books kick ass. Accessible to geeks and noobs (if you're not sure what that means, it's you) alike, Content is a must-have compilation from Cory Doctorow, who will be glad to take you along for the ride as he effortlessly surfs the zeitgeist.
