Seattle! Want to see Cory Doctorow talk about his fab books Little Brother, Homeland, Pirate Cinema? Or about privacy, cryptography, social activism, and what it means to live in a world where surveillance is becoming ever-present? Publishing? Freedom of information? He’ll be in conversation with Geekwire columnist Frank Catalano on Tuesday, July 28 at 7:00 pm at University Temple United Methodist Church, 1415 Northeast 43rd Street (across the street from the University Book Store).
