Folks,

Cory Doctorow was the European Affairs Coordinator for the EFF.
Together with  Noisebridger Danny O'Brien and other, he helped
establish the Open Rights Group in the UK. He's a columnist writing
against excessive copyright and government oversight for The Guardian
UK, and prolific blogger on BoingBoing. Also a friend of some NB
alumni. Hell, NB even features in his latest book, Pirate Cinema!

So I thought you'd be interested to know that Cory will be doing a
talk and signing event at neighbouring Borderlands (866 Valencia)
tomorrow Thursday at 7PM for Pirate Cinema.

Living in the South Bay, I attended his event at Kepler's in Menlo
Park (somewhat sparsely attended. Was there some other major event
tonight keeping everyone busy?), and sporting an NB t-shirt asked him
about Flattr: "Great! But doesn't help fight poisonous IP
legislation". I regret not thinking of other questions to bother him
with, such as what he thinks of the failing Hadopi in France as an
example of things to come.
