Opening Plenary: Cory Doctorow
Cory Doctorow was introduced as an editor of Boing Boing, a science fiction novelist whose works can be downloaded via Craphound.com and is one of Forbes.com's Web Celeb 25.
I took notes, but since it's late and I still have to get up early for tomorrow's sessions—and Confessions of a Science Librarian has already posted his notes—I'll just let you hear and read what Doctorow has said at other venues:
"Cory Doctorow - Cool Geek of the Week" (bornrich.org, 27 January 2007)His talk was engaging and enlightening, but it would be have been much better if he had slides or webshots for those who had no idea what he was referring to. Here, for the benefit of those interested, are links to some of the sites/ideas he mentioned:
"Giving It Away" by Cory Doctorow (Forbes, 1 December 2006)
"What's the Point of Copyright?" (mp3; 16 November 2006)
