Tech lit

I recently read the novel Makers by Cory Doctorow.

It managed to cover the issues related to individual creativity and intellectual property (ranging from open source to mega-litigation) in an entertaining way.

The book is not science fiction although it is set in the not too far future. It references corporations such as Kodak, Duracell and Disney and follows the journey of 2 inventors and a reporter. A key element is the effect of litigation on their lives.

And it appears to be part of a new stream of literature: tech lit.

It refers to the Burning Man. If you want to know about it you’ll have to read Daemon and Freedom by Daniel Suarez.
