Cory Doctorow is a genius

This call to action by Cory Doctorow is the best thing you’ll read all year. If you have any interest in technology policy, business strategy, technology innovation — hell, if you just want to read a smart guy telling it like it will be — then block the next half hour to read this speech by Cory Doctorow.

The speech is one he recently gave to Microsoft, about why Digital Rights Management (DRM) is bad for business, bad for society, bad for artists. Did I mention it’s bad? (Cue Dana Carvey — “It’s bad! It’s bad!”) It’s a clarion call to Microsoft to get out there, do what no other company on earth can do, and to dare to be great.

I sure would have loved to be in that room. The speech is that historic.
