Here's my reading (MP3) of Zuck's Empire of Oily Rags , a Locus Magazine column about the corruption implicit in surveillance capitalism, which creates giant risks to users by collecting sensitive information about them in order to eke out tiny gains in the efficacy of targeted advertising. The commercial surveillance industry may not be very good at selling us fridges, but they're very good at locating racists and thugs and getting them to support violent political movements.

Here's my reading (MP3) of Let's get better at demanding better from tech , a Locus Magazine column about the need to enlist moral, ethical technologists in the fight for a better technological future. It was written before the death of EFF co-founder John Perry Barlow, whose life's work was devoted to this proposition, and before the Google uprising over Project Maven, in which technologists killed millions in military contracts by refusing to build AI systems for the Pentagon's drones.

The anthology also features fiction by William Gibson, Lauren Beukes, Chris Brown, Pat Cadigan, Warren Ellis, Joel Garreau, and Paul Graham Raven. The 2013 summer anthology was a huge hit -- Gardner Dozois called it "one of the year’s best SF anthologies to date, perhaps the best."

In honour of the Great Firewall of Cameron -- the UK government's plan to force ISPs to turn on network-level spying and censorship of "adult" material -- I've read aloud "There's no way to stop children viewing porn in Starbucks" , a column I wrote for the Guardian the last time the UK government floating this idiotic proposal, explaining, comprehensively, why this is such a stupid, stupid idea.

Here's a reading of my recent Locus column, Ten Years On , in which I reflect on my first decade as a novelist and discuss a possible further volume related to Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom , my first-ever novel: I never thought I’d write a sequel. The allure of writing books has always been the experience of discovering and exploring a place and people that have been cooked up by my imagination. By the time I’ve squeezed the book out through my fingertips, I’m generally pretty sick...

I've just started podcasting a new story, a novella-in-progress called "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow/Now is the Best Time of Your LIfe." It's a long, weird adventure story about the failure of futurism and the difference between "progress" and "change," all about immortal children stalking the bones of ruined cities in lethal mechas. Disney fans will recognize the title as coming from the amazing, weird, awful and wonderful Carousel of Progress ride that...

Here's a reading from my forthcoming young adult novel, "Little Brother," about San Francisco hacker kids who fight back against the Department of Homeland Security. Tor will publish it in May, 2008. I really went to town on the samples and mixing in this one, hauling out Audacity , the free/open sound-editing program, and grabbing a boatload of samples from the Freesound project , and a little punk guitar from the Anchormen , a great Boston act. This reading is licensed Creative...

Here's the eleventh and final installment (chapters 27-31) of the podcast of my second novel Eastern Standard Tribe , a novel of political intrigue among high-tech, sleep-deprived management consultants. This is my most ambitious podcasting project to date -- I figure it'll take 4-6 months to complete. I’ve found a half-brick that was being used to hold down the tar paper around an exhaust-chimney. I should’ve used that to hold the door open, but it’s way the hell the other side of the...
