In this episode author Cory Doctorow discusses three stories from his new collection, Radicalized. We discuss:

  • the perils of DRM, and becoming dependent on manufacturers — from printers, to toasters and beyond — and how (or if) we can force control of our technological future
  • what lengths it’s permissible to go to when we’re trying to effect change against the systems which might very well end the world as we know it;
  • if all of this fails, the ethical, philosophical and practical problems involved in waiting out the apocalypse in a high-tech, high-security bunker.

Grab Cory’s new book Radicalized — DRM and EULA free – at Craphound.com, or all the traditional online retailers.
