Next week (on Thursday, February 28), author, journalist, technology activist, and Boing Boing co-editor Cory Doctorow presents this spring's Richard W. Gunn Memorial Lecture:

"The Coming War on General Purpose Computing: Every single political issue will end up rehashing the stupid Internet copyright fight."

When: Thursday, February 28, 2013 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Where: Alderson Auditorium University of Kansas Student Union

Cost: Free! Seating is limited, so arrive early to ensure a spot.

Jayhawk Ink bookstore will have copies of several of Doctorow's books available to purchase in Alderson Auditorium (as well as the bookstore on Level 2) and get signed by the author after the talk.

This is Doctorow's third visit to KU: first in 1999 when his story "Craphound" (his first published story) was a finalist for the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, and next in 2009 when his novel Little Brother won the John W. Campbell Memorial Award. Don't miss hearing one of the most interesting thinkers of our time talk about some of our most-relevant issues!
