  1. 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."

  5. Cory Doctorow on losing the open Web

    In this episode of the Hardware podcast, we talk with writer and digital rights activist Cory Doctorow. He’s recently rejoined the Electronic Frontier Foundation to fight a World Wide Web Consortium proposal that would add DRM to the core specification for HTML. When we recorded this episode with Cory, the W3C had just overruled the EFF’s objection. The result, he says, is that “we are locking innovation out of the Web.”

    “It is illegal to report security vulnerabilities in a DRM,” Doctorow says. “[DRM] is making it illegal to tell people when the devices they depend upon for their very lives are unsuited for that purpose.”
