Cory Doctorow’s spanking new novel Attack Surface is the latest addition to his dystopian Little Brother novels. First, I downloaded the audio book as part of Cory’s Kickstarter campaign. Later, I felt compelled to pick up the hardcopy to bring to the woodsy wi-fi deserts I escape to when I binge write. Doctorow’s uncanny ability to see where technology is taking us is mind-bending. Back in 2003, for instance, his prescient Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom (2003) accurately foretold how influence would become a valuable currency, like money. I expect Attack Surface will reveal similar trends.
