03/05/22: Seize the Means of Computation: the Big Tech Disassembly Manual with Cory Doctorow

Boston Computation Club

March 6, 2022

74 minutes

Cory Doctorow ( is a science fiction author, activist and journalist.  In my circles, he's probably best known for his work with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Boing Boing, but he's also a renowned science fiction author in his own right, an MIT Media Lab Research Affiliate, a Visiting Professor of Computer Science at Open University, a Visiting Professor of Practice at the University of North Carolina’s School of Library and Information Science, and co-founder of the UK Open Rights Group.  In short: Cory is precisely the kind of polymath we love to engage with at the Boston Computation Club!  Today, Cory joined us to discuss Big Tech - what's wrong with it and how to fix (read: DISMANTLE) it.  The talk was engaging, exciting, elucidating - all that and a bag of chips.  We really enjoyed talking to Cory and we hope you enjoy the recording!  You can also view this talk in video form HERE.
