Content: Selected Essays on Technology, Creativity, Copyright, and the Future of the Future

By Cory Doctorow
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.
