Internet Legend Answers Your Twitter Questions

Our ‘Nice To Tweet You’ series connects our Twitter followers with artists, curators, speakers and experts. Tweet your questions to @agoToronto using the #NTTY hashtag and the best will be put forward to whoever’s in the hot seat.

Our interviewee this week is Boing Boing co-founder Cory Doctorow. As well as founding one of the web’s most insightful and entertaining sites, Cory is also a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger.

On September 14 from 7 – 8.30pm he will be joining us at the AGO to give a free talk that poses the question, ‘Can creativity and freedom peacefully co-exist in the Internet age?’ He’ll be discussing Internet copyright and the creative industries – the challenges we face when creating and distributing content online. We recommend getting there early if you’d like to see the talk – we expect it to be very busy.
