    Surveillance capitalism isn’t "rogue capitalism," it’s monopoly capitalism: data-collection doesn’t let Big Tech control our minds, but monopolies on search results and app stores do. But surveillance isn’t harmless: it’s deadly toxic, and has the power to destroy our lives, and it’s precisely because data produces such poor returns to advertisers that they end up collecting so much of it.

  2. Sci-Fi’s Cory Doctorow Separates Self-Publishing Fact From Fiction

    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."

  3. Cory Doctorow at the San Francisco Public Library

    Nico Sell, the co-founder of Wickr, chats with author Cory Doctorow about Snowden, security, privacy, and Little Brother. The 2013 "One City One Book" Selection Committee said Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is the perfect pick this year because: "Doctorow is an author not afraid to fight the good fight, and in this highly readable, technologically savvy novel for all reading levels, he gives us the tools necessary so that we can do the same. Little Brother is daring, exciting, and just bold enough to show us how to keep our freedoms safe. This is a provocative book, a timely book, and the San Francisco setting is just so satisfying."

  4. re:publica 2013 - Cory Doctorow: It’s not a fax machine connect to a waffle iron

    Lawmakers treat the Internet like it’s Telephone 2.0, the Second Coming of Video on Demand, or the World’s Number One Porn Distribution Service, but it’s really the nervous system of the 21st Century. Unless we stop the trend toward depraved indifference in Internet law, making — and freedom — will die.
