Hailed by Bruce Sterling as a political activist, gizmo freak, junk collector, programmer, entrepreneur, and all-around Renaissance geek, Cory Doctorow is the webs most celebrated high-tech pop-culture maven. Content is the first collection of Doctorows infamous articles, essays, and polemics. Heres 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 Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy; and, of course, why free e-books kick ass. Accessible to geeks and noobs (if youre not sure what that means, its 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.
