Cory Doctorow / Homeland / Paranoia In/Of America

Cory Doctorow Delivers
Homeland
Sequel to Little Brother  ((blog post) read the post)
The paranoia continues

Marcus Yallow is once again called to duty
He has a jump drive full of incendiary information
Exposing some egregious players
Some Corporate, some Government

What's a poor boy to do
"Get Up, Stand Up: Stand Up For Your Rights!" (Bob Marley)
Marcus stands up, and does what Marcus does best
Real World techie, geeky, hactivist, anonymous stuff

As with Little Brother and Homeland 
Are more than exciting reads
They shout to the reader to be a good citizen
To be an active participant in our Democracy

The books disdain bad hackers
The books disdain bad government
The books challenge the reader
The books challenge the government

Be as good a person as you can be
Govern the best you can govern
Work to correct what is not right
Expose what is simply wrong

The Afterword written by Aaron Swartz
Enlightens
Aaron is no longer with us
Cory's homage to Arron is a Must Read


The people's music
Legend: the Best of Bob Marley and the Wailers
Bob Marley and the Wailers
