A Hopeful Look At The Apocalypse: interview with Innovation Hub

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 13:27:50 +0000

I’m on the latest episode of Innovation Hub (MP3): Science-fiction is a genre that imagines the future. It doesn’t necessarily predict the future (after all, where are flying cars?), but it grapples with the technological and societal changes happening today to better understand our world and where it’s heading. So, what does it mean when... more

Rudy Rucker on Walkaway

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 21:39:28 +0000

Walkaway is my first novel for adults since 2009 and I had extremely high hopes (and not a little anxiety) for it as it entered the world, back in April. Since then, I’ve been gratified by the kind words of many of my literary heroes, from William Gibson to Bruce Sterling to the kind cover... more

I’m profiled in the new issue of Locus Magazine

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 13:46:16 +0000

Cory Doctorow: Bugging In: ‘‘Walkaway is an ‘optimistic disaster novel.’ It’s about people who, in a crisis, come together, rather than turning on each other. Its villains aren’t the people next door, who’ve secretly been waiting for civilization’s breakdown as an excuse to come and eat you, but the super-rich who are convinced that without... more

Talking Walkaway with Reason Magazine

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 14:21:30 +0000

Of all the press-stops I did on my tour for my novel Walkaway, I was most excited about my discussion with Katherine Mangu-Ward, editor-in-chief of Reason Magazine, where I knew I would have a challenging and meaty conversation with someone who was fully conversant with the political, technological and social questions the book raised. I... more

How to write pulp fiction that celebrates humanity’s essential goodness

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 16:34:52 +0000

My latest Locus column is “Be the First One to Not Do Something that No One Else Has Ever Not Thought of Doing Before,” and it’s about science fiction’s addiction to certain harmful fallacies, like the idea that you can sideline the actual capabilities and constraints of computers in order to advance the plot of... more

My presentation from ConveyUX

Wed, 05 Jul 2017 16:44:03 +0000

Last March, I traveled to Seattle to present at the ConveyUX conference, with a keynote called “Dark Patterns and Bad Business Models”, the video for which has now been posted: “The Internet’s broken and that’s bad news, because everything we do today involves the Internet and everything we’ll do tomorrow will require it. But governments... more

Wed, 05 Jul 2017 16:31:31 +0000

Back in May, I stopped by Wired UK while on my British tour for my novel Walkaway to talk about the novel, surveillance, elections, and, of course, DRM. (MP3)

Bruce Sterling reviews WALKAWAY

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 23:59:46 +0000

Bruce Sterling, Locus Magazine: Walkaway is a real-deal, generically traditional science-fiction novel; it’s set in an undated future and it features weird set design, odd costumes, fights, romances, narrow escapes, cool weapons, even zeppelins. This is the best Cory Doctorow book ever. I don’t know if it’s destined to become an SF classic, mostly because... more

Canada: Trump shows us what happens when “good” politicians demand surveillance powers

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 20:17:02 +0000

The CBC asked me to write an editorial for their package about Canadian identity and politics, timed with the 150th anniversary of the founding of the settler state on indigenous lands. They’ve assigned several writers to expand on themes in the Canadian national anthem, and my line was “We stand on guard for thee.” I... more

Talking about contestable futures on the Imaginary Worlds podcast

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 13:39:07 +0000

I’m in the latest episode of Imaginary Worlds, “Imagining the Internet” (MP3), talking about the future as a contestable place that we can’t predict, but that we can influence. We were promised flying cars and we got Twitter instead. That’s the common complaint against sci-fi authors. But some writers did imagine the telecommunications that changed... more

Bad news: tech is making us more unequal. Good news: tech can make us more equal.

Wed, 31 May 2017 13:27:54 +0000

My latest Guardian column is Technology is making the world more unequal. Only technology can fix this; in it, I argue that surveillance and control technology allow ruling elites to hold onto power despite the destabilizing effects of their bad decisions — but that technology also allows people to form dissident groups and protect them... more
