Tom Jackson on Cory Doctorow

By day the hero of Cory Doctorow's latest novel works within the system, taking a job as a webmaster for an independent candidate for the California senate. By night, he’s a part of a guerrilla WikiLeaks-style operation, trying to deal with goons who are out to get him and hackers trying to control his computer. The story, Tom Jackson reports, should resonate with any reader who worries about online privacy and the government’s ability to use the Net as a tool for political repression.
