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

My guest-appearance on Hello From the Magic Tavern

Mon, 29 May 2017 14:46:34 +0000

I’m a huge fan of the fantastically rude improv/current affairs/high fantasy podcast Hello From the Magic Tavern, I’ve enjoyed it ever since I binge-listened to the first season halfway through. Last month, I dropped into the Cards Against Humanity studios where the podcast is recorded while in Chicago on my book tour, where I sat... more

Talking WALKAWAY with Reason

Thu, 25 May 2017 21:50:13 +0000

My novel WALKAWAY is something of a fusion of the best elements of the anti-authoritarian left and the anti-authoritarian right. In a meaty interview with Reason Magazine, I discuss the politics and economics, and theories of human action with Reason magazine Editor in Chief Katherine Mangu-Ward.

Liverpool, I’ll see you tonight on the Walkaway tour! (then Birmingham, Hay-on-Wye, San Francisco…) (!)
