SATURDAY: Cory @Doctorow – Information Doesn’t Want to Be Free @NYAMNYC @NYLA_1890

Information doesn't want to be free..On Saturday June 6 2015 at 1pm the New York Library Association will host Cory Doctorow presenting his new book Information Doesn’t Want to be Free at the New York Academy of Medicine in NYC. From the blurb:

Information doesn’t want to be free…but people do.

We live in a world made of networked computers, but still our lawmakers treat the Internet as though it was a better video on demand system or a pornography distribution system or a jihadi recruiting system—instead of the nervous system of the 21st century.

How can libraries and activists strike alliances to demand that information policy be afforded the gravitas it’s due? And how can creators—who, after all, should always be on the side of free expression, privacy and freedom—be recruited to the fight?

Admission is free, but an RSVP is required.
