Cory Doctorow in Atlanta (full!)

Last week, blogger, activist, author and all-around nice guy stopped by in Atlanta on his tour to promote Homeland, his new book. I dragged my wife and eldest over to the talk, held at the surprisingly nice auditorium at the Decatur public library. Even arriving 15 minutes early, seats were hard to find, and so I was near the back.

I posted a clip of this last week from the warm-up where we talked about liquid democracy (more on that later) and No Safe Harbor, but here’s the full talk. I did miss the first few minutes of the talk, because I dropped the camera (my wife’s phone) and the battery popped out. The missing bit though is just a recap of a battle over the privacy of school-issued laptops and the anti-theft software used on them. You can find Cory’s own recap on this over at Boing Boing.

It was a great talk, and if you get to catch one of the stops on the tour, I recommend it.
