Shamelessly stealing from the Cory Doctorow page...
Cory Doctorow is a Canadian techno-sage who, amongst other things, writes SF. His only novel so far is Down And Out In The Magic Kingdom, a slice of post-Bruce Sterling peri Charlie Stross Cyber Punk (sort of). Notably, as well as a standard dead tree edition, he also released the whole thing online under a creative commons license. To date [insert number here] copies have been downloaded, which is [insert number here] times more copies than were ever printed. He has also been involved in several collaborations with Charlie Stross, the most recent example of which - 'Unwirer' - was written as alternate posts in a Web Log.
As a day job, he is Outreach Coordinator for the Electronic Frontier Foundation?, and by night is a celebrated blogger.
He is probably not related to the writer EL Doctorow.
