The Coming Civil War over General-purpose Computing

Cory Doctorow is a smart thinker when it comes to computers and how they relate to our basic rights. Over the summer he delviered a lecture titled The Coming Civil War over General-purpose Computing and it’s a fascinating look into the future of DRM (digital rights management), firmware, security, openness, and how we as a culture relate to computers.

Watch the lecture below and you may also want to check out the text version of his argument.

Title says it all, here’s a recording of Slavoj Žižek delivering a lecture on The Wire. Spoilers abound, so if you’re someone who hasn’t seen the show yet then you should go do that right away.

That something extra in the title is The Wire: The Video Game
