Cory Doctorow book of essays

I am a big fan of Cory Doctorow's writing -- his fiction and his essays on technology, rights, and privacy. Via BoingBoing, comes word of his new book of essays -- Content: Selected Essays on Technology, Creativity, Copyright, and the Future of the Future.-- which he is making available as a free Creative Commons licensed PDF download.

I you haven't read Cory Doctorow yet, you should. I don't always agree with everything he says, but he is thoughtful and technologically savvy and writes thorough essays on very relevant topics in an entertaining style.

I've read some of these essays before, but having them together in one beautifully-designed volume that I can always refer to is the proverbial good thing.

If you like Cory Doctorow, you'll probably enjoy Matt Ruff and Lisa Gold's blogs.

Matt discusses how Cory got him a reading date (he'a an award winning author) in this post: http://matt-ruff.livejournal.com/48924.html and Lisa has a lot to say about Research tactics for writers: http://lisagoldresearch.wordpress.com/
