In his new novel Walkaway, Boing Boing’s Cory Doctorow contemplates where our state of rapid technological advancement might lead. In a society where every necessity and amenity can be 3-D printed for the uber-rich, the 99 percent ditch their jobs and lives to found a utopian society. They soon learn how to live forever, a secret the one percent will do anything to acquire. Doctorow talks about his latest work, the present and the future through the prism of tech.
