This is a link to a series on what will be a new theme here at Engaging Conflicts — Financial Distress. I’m doing this particular set over at my Bankruptcy Law Blog, reviewing Ramit Sethi’s tips for saving money. Sethi discusses the various ways we can keep money in our pockets at his blog IWillTeachYouToBeRich.com. Financial distress is the theme of these times and will engender much conflict in ways we must start examining. At least, I must. This is, in part, an experiment as I do not necessarily have clear links to make between Engaging Conflicts and financial distress issues, but we will see where this leads. Please see more about this theme on the new page “Financial Distress”.

Cory Doctorow is a science fiction author and technology activist. He won the John W. Campbell Award for best new writer in 2000. HeElectronic Frontier Foundation.

I came across his article Digital Rights Management at ChangeThis recently. As he says in his introduction:

I’m here today to talk to you about copyright, technology and DRM, I work for the Electronic Frontier Foundation on copyright stuff (mostly), and I live in London. I’m not a lawyer—I’m a kind of mouthpiece/activist type, though occasionally they shave me and stuff me into my Bar Mitzvah suit and send me to a standards body or the UN to stir up trouble. I spend about three weeks a month on the road doing completely weird stuff like going to Microsoft to talk about DRM. I lead a double life: I’m also a science fiction writer. That means I’ve got a dog in this fight, because I’ve been dreaming of making my living from writing since I was 12 years old. Admittedly, my IP-based biz isn’t as big as yours, but I guarantee you that it’s every bit as important to me as yours is to you.
