After my event at Austin's Book People on Feb 22, I'll be doing a benefit for EFF-Austin on their location privacy campaign. We did this the last time I came through town and it was tremendous -- come on out!
An evening with Cory Doctorow and EFF-Austin
22nd or 27th? Conflicting dates
Yeah. I’m thinking it’s actually the 22nd. Which means I won’t be in Austin too.
WHAT SCHWA CORPORATION PRODUCTS WILL BE SOLD?? MY TRAVEL PLANS DEPEND ON THIS KNOWLEDGE.
February 22 is correct – looking for a correction to pop up Soon. Not only will there be Schwa products, but Schwa instigator Bill Barker designed the flyer! I haven’t seen the goodies to be sold, but I’m told Bill sent over some great leftover Schwa era stuff.
cool, see you then!
While you’re down there, would you ask EFF-Austin for the 5 dollars they owe me? 19 years ago I went to hear Bruce Sterling speak about the Clipper chip etc. He told us about the work that EFF was doing. (EDIT: He also mentioned bOING bOING as it was then known.) Afterward, he said he could sign up anyone interested, so I gave him 5 bucks, my name, and address. I never heard anything and now I no longer live in the area. (He did keep eyeing me suspiciously, like he thought I was HUAC or some such — I got this treatment from Johnny Rat once, too.)
I’ve sent a box of most of the stickers that I made, many cards, bookmarks and a few keychains. It sounds like a fun event!

And many thanks! I’m gonna refresh my collection of Schwa mystery…
