Ah, the classic set-up for Masque of the Red Death. Ofc by Poe, but also the one by @doctorow@twitter.com. Both of which pretty sure these super-rich types haven't read (because they don't)... twitter.com/guardiannews/statu

Great GenX perk:
Old enough to have discovered William Gibson, and young enough to have discovered @doctorow@twitter.com.
Sure, their style and personalities are different, but both have that well-tuned power of observation that make them almost seem to be "prophets".
And a damn fine read!

Set in a near-future Boston, Unauthorized Bread is an exploration of the potential problems caused by user rights, copyright and digital rights management (DRM). Fantastic read, built on a bedrock of empathy.

Radicalized by @doctorow@twitter.com

Social SF about a terrorist movement that targets health insurance companies. Pointed and insightful.

(Yep. Some of us had two different novellas by Doctorow on our nominating ballots. That collection is superb).

@aedison@twitter.com @doctorow@twitter.com NZ has a modern military and relies on functioning global trade for essential goods. If it's bad enough that you actually need a bunker it's bad enough that they'll dig you out and eat you.

My kids are currently acting out a trial with their Legos. The first witness is named Mr. Popsicle.

My son, playing the defense attorney, cross-examining Mr. Popsicle: “But how could you have seen the crime when you were IN SOMEONE’S MOUTH??”
