Tuesday, May 20, 2008LITTLE BROTHER -- DOWNLOADABLE BOOK
We just received a new book: Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, which I've checked out to start reading -- it's been getting pretty good reviews and sounds interesting. Here's a blurb:Marcus, a.k.a “w1n5t0n,” is 17 years old, and he already knows how to work the system. Smart, fast, and wise to the ways of the networked world, outmaneuvering his high school’s surveillance systems is like playing an antique computer game.Here's a cool thing about this book -- you can download for free at the author's site/blog: http://craphound.com/littlebrother/download/
But while he and his friends are skipping school one afternoon, they find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they’re ruthlessly interrogated for days.
When the DHS finally lets them go, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state and every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows that he has only one option: to take down the DHS himself.
Download, read, and enjoy!
