Today we bring you the next episode of the Steal This Show podcast, discussing renegade media and the latest decentralization and file-sharing news. In this episode, we talk with with journalist, activist and author Cory Doctorow.
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.
Steal This Show aims to release bi-weekly episodes featuring insiders discussing crypto, privacy, copyright and file-sharing developments. It complements our regular reporting by adding more room for opinion, commentary, and analysis.
