Agenda Plus: Cory Doctorow on the Future of the Library

by Eric Bombicino Wednesday July 10, 2013

Cory Doctorow, science fiction author and co-editor of Boing Boing, will be on The Agenda in the Summer over the next two nights. Tonight, we'll be discussing his latest novel, Homeland, and the new digital political ethos his characters represent. Tomorrow night we'll be discussing the suicide of his dear friend Aaron Swartz, and the bigger battle over the future of an open internet that Swartz's untimely passing underscores.

Above, in a web-only segment, Doctorow discusses the future of the library and how it can refocus its efforts to boost computer literacy.
