In today’s precarious world, what’s not to love about “a utopian disaster novel”, especially one from Boing Boing contributor, bestselling author and tech expert, Cory Doctorow. The visionary journalist and writer visits Vancouver to discuss some of the city’s most promising tech ventures, what he believes will be technological advancements in the near future, and how we may be able to walk away from oppressive authority systems, as envisioned in his upcoming novel Walkaway.

Timely and original, Doctorow’s thinking doesn’t so much imagine a brave new world as shapes it. Join us for this riveting evening of discussion.
