At the beginning of this year I had the greatest pleasure of meeting the Cory Doctorow in person! Now as the year quickly comes to an end I thought it was about time I got a blog post up about the awesome that was this event. Unfortunately what happens when Kate waits too long to write a post her phone KOs and she loses all the smart notes she took from Cory’s talk.
So now you are stuck with me telling you that Cory Doctorow is amazingly smart and we need more people like him in the world.
I first read Little Brother by Cory as part of the reading bowl team I was on in high school. Some of my other team members weren’t as fond of it because of the technical information but I was fascinated. Although I grew up as part of this tech generation when it comes to coding and building computers I am completely in the dark. But Little Brother made me want to learn more. Being able to listen to Cory speak about technology, government, and privacy only made me want to learn even more.
Luckily for you all after some digging I was able to find a podcast from the event! Now you all can listen to Cory’s awesome. <3
