The "content" of this audiobook--narrated by Paul Michael Garcia in a straightforward, instructive style--is composed of pre-2008 speeches, articles, and essays by Cory Doctorow, most of which are related to his work with the Electronic Freedom Foundation. Like the EFF, Doctorow is concerned with civil liberties in the digital realm and with issues regarding privacy, free expression, and innovation. Some of the material is entertaining, and some is thought-provoking (for example, the Ray Kurzweil interview). Alas, much of this content--discourses on the information economy, digital rights management, the future of eBooks, and shrink-wrap licenses--seems dated, like an artifact from the last decade. P.S. For audiobook listeners who like to track the text with the audio, Doctorow is offering the eBook for free. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
