In this Meanland Lecture, Cory Doctorow discusses how writers can seize the possibilities of the digital future.
The internet and digital technology is challenging traditional notions of copyright, but many authors are finding new and innovative ways to circulate their work — and to make a living while doing so. Acclaimed SF writer, blogger and commentator Cory Doctorow looks at the perils and opportunities of this brave new world.
Cory Doctorow is co-editor of BoingBoing.net and the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. He was named one of the internet’s top 25 influencers by Forbes magazine and a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. He hopes you’ll use technology to change the world.
Cory Doctorow is brought to you by Meanland (a collaboration between Meanjin, Overland and if:book), The Wheeler Centre and Melbourne Writers Festival.
