  2. Blasphemy & Revelation – with David Heinemeier Hansson | Case Studies & Business Tips

    The blasphemous part of this interview comes when David Heinemeier Hansson blasts many of the ideas that entrepreneurs hold sacred. Suffering isn’t the heroic way to work. It’s a sign you might be working on the wrong thing. Charging and profiting don’t make you evil or short-sighted. They ensure you can grow. It’s inspiring, and it’s why I invited David of 37signals to do this interview. For the revelation, listen to…

  3. Information Doesn’t Want to be Free

    There are three iron laws of information age creativity, freedom and business, woven deep into the fabric of the Internet’s design, the functioning of markets, and the global system of regulation and trade agreements.

    Cory Doctorow is a science fiction author, activist, journalist, blogger and co-editor of Boing Boing.

    He has written a ton of great books. If you haven’t read them, I recommend starting with Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom and working your way through to his collaboration with Charles Stross, Rapture of the Nerds. Don’t miss out on his fantastic Young Adult novels For The Win, Pirate Cinema, Little Brother and its sequel Homeland. They’re all great.

    Former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and co-founder of the Open Rights Group, Cory is a tireless fighter for freedom, campaigning against censorship, DRM, government surveillance and other plagues of our time.

    Cory delivered the closing keynote at the very first dConstruct and it’s truly fitting that he’s back ten years later when the theme of this year’s dConstruct is “Living With The Network.”
