Panel discussion at the LA Times Festival of Books on April 27, 2007 at UCLA, with Kage Baker, Cory Doctorow, John Scalzi and Harry Turtledove.
Cory Doctorow is a best-selling science-fiction writer, champion of creative commons and, now, self-publishing pioneer. He’s distributing his latest book, a collection of short stories called With a Little Help, without the aid of a publishing house. Instead, he has turned to his online community, and social networks like Facebook and Twitter, to help build buzz, get advice and even copy edit his new book.
Doctorow tells NPR’s Michele Norris the key to making money off a business model that’s built around the word "free."
Charlie Stross and Cory Doctorow talk with Mitch Wagner from Internet Evolution about their forthcoming book, Rapture of the Nerds.
Cory Doctorow is an activist, teacher, public speaker, and technology expert. A New York Times bestselling author, he is also co-editor of BoingBoing.net, one of the most popular blogs in the world and recipient of more than three million unique visitors per month, and a columnist for publications ranging from Information Week to The Guardian to Publishers Weekly.
In this podcast episode, we catch up with Doctorow on book tour for his latest novel, For the Win, a young adult book about video-games, labor politics and economics. He will be at BEA 2010, speaking at the Children’s Book & Author Breakfast, on May 26 at 8:00 AM. He will be joined on the panel by Richard Peck, author of Three Quarters Dead; and Mitali Perkins, author of Bamboo People. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and author of Helping Hand Books: Emily’s First Day at School will be the Master of Ceremonies.
