Is Cyberpunk Still a Thing?

Thursday 12:00 – 13:00, 3501H (Kansas City Convention Center)

Cyberpunk hit with a big splash, but as personal computers became more prevalent, smaller, and portable, the genre seems to have faded. Or has it? Our panelists take a renewed look at the state of Cyberpunk at the ripe young age of 35.

Ms Pat Cadigan, Cory Doctorow (M), Matt Jacobson, Alvaro Zinos-Amaro, James Patrick Kelly, Patrick Nielsen Hayden

Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks, and Other Forms of Intellectual

Friday 10:00 – 11:00, 2502B (Kansas City Convention Center)

A look at the purpose of patents, copyrights, and trademarks. What is their historical purpose, how is the need for them changing, and where will they go in the future?

An Idiot’s Guide Revisited, circa 2000

Friday 13:00 – 14:00, 2208 (Kansas City Convention Center)

It’s circa 2000 and authors Cory Doctorow and Karl Schroeder just published /The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Publishing Science Fiction/. Fast-forward 16 years later, and the world of publishing has evolved, but how much has it really changed? Cory and Karl take a look back and discuss what they got right, what they got wrong, and how things have changed over the years.

    I hope to see you out here in the desert state of New Mexico some soon! That would be fantastic!

  2. Carrie Jones

    Come to San Francisco! We’d love to host you at the Scribd offices for our Scribd Author series. :) You’re always welcome.

  3. Cory Doctorow

    Thanks, Carrie! Send me an email and I’ll add it to the file of invites, OK?

  4. Debbie

    I will try to get to Oregon, but would prefer if you could make an appearance in the Seattle area, maybe at Elliott Bay books!

  5. Cory Doctorow

    Hey, Debbie! I live in London and have a small child, so getting to the west coast is always tricky, but I hope I’ll get to SEA again sometime soon!

  6. Debbie

    Thanks Cory! We have no small children but we do have relatives in and around London so maybe we will have to come to you.

    Hi, Cory– I was the author and professor sitting to your right on the “Technology in SF” panel at MidsouthCon this past weekend in Memphis. I enjoyed your comments and also your stand for gender equity in taking questions from the audience. Cheers. –Van

  8. Phil

    So when are you in Australia next? One of these times, given enough notice we will catch up….

  9. Lizzy

    You really should come speak at Rochester Institute of Technology, I think many of the students and staff would love to hear you speak and your insights on their chosen field.

  10. Cory Doctorow

    I’ve been there before, a couple years back, with Charlie Stross on our RAPTURE OF THE NERDS tour. I’d love to come back someday.

  11. Liz

    Will you be anywhere in SF next month besides the gala? I was so bummed to miss your visit to uWaterloo (my alma mater) last year!

  12. Cory Doctorow

    There’s the SFPL Library Laureates dinner on Mar 19, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing an EFF event on Mar 20, but details still TBD.

  13. Paul

    Sadly I missed your speech the last time you were in Toronto/Waterloo. Are you doing any speeches in the Toronto area any time soon?
