Do No Evil

I recently discovered Cory Doctorow. Apparently he's pretty well known. I had never heard of him until I stumbled upon some of his writings in searching for articles related to a paper I was writing. Of course, I ended up reading a bunch of his stuff instead of what I needed for my paper.

He has a fun story called Scroogled where he pictures a world in which Google turns evil.

I haven't gotten to it yet, but I'm looking forward to reading his When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth, when I get a minute.

If you haven't read Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, check it out. It's free and open. After reading it, we bought paper copies for several friends. Cory has proven the rule that free and open can be economically viable...and he's a good writer.
