show #238

happy 2020 dear listeners. we are back with the first show of the new year in a “radicalized” fashion = activist and writer [co-editor of boingboing] cory doctorow is our guest today and we are discussing his latest book of the same name: “radicalized” tells of predictive policing, proprietary bread, a superhero facing anti-immigrant sentiment and domestic terrorism. as the blurb on the cover of the book suggests, these are indeed stories “of our present moment”. enjoy a thought-provoking discussion about power, change and digital culture [including social virtual worlds] with one of the clearest thinkers of our …. well: the present moment!

and below more context, more stuff to feed your brain with:

  • the original stream from sansar with cory [shirt by solas and silas]:
  • a little clip from the interview focusing on the core issue: “is disney the man?”

  • cory’s latest essay on smart cities [he also wrote a must-read column for locus magazine recently] is spot on:
