Cory Doctorow : information doesn't want to be free

  • Waterstones Deansgate Manchester United Kingdom

Pursuing a creative life in the 21st century is an unprecedented challenge. There's nothing you can do that'll work for everyone, and anything that works for you will stop working as soon as the technology moves on. Being a 21st century artist means continuously reevaluating proposals for improbable-seeming ways of getting food on the table. 

As part of the Manchester Literature Festival, award-winning author, activist, and journalist Cory Doctorow takes you through three simple rules for evaluating digital business models for creative people, and explains how the choices you make about your digital creativity resonate through the whole web of the 21 century's electronic nervous system.
