UltraCreatives Interview #12: Cory Doctorow

Transient

After a week hiatus, the UltraCreatives Interview Series is back! This week, J.C. Hutchins chats with Cory Doctorow, co-editor of BoingBoing.net, activist and author of the new novel, Little Brother.

Cory is best-known as a pioneer in the Open Media movement and the "giving it away is okay" philosophy -- releasing free versions of his fiction to evangelize and enhance the exposure of his printed work. He's a trendsetter and visionary in this field. In addition, Cory is an activist, consumer advocate, and a co-editor for the culture blog, BoingBoing.net.

In this interview, Cory chats about his career as a writer, his activism, and Little Brother, which debuted in bookstores last week. Stick around after the interview: you'll hear an excerpt from the novel, which is also available as a DRM-free audiobook from Random House Audio.
