Interview with Cory Doctorow

This is a little old but I think it’s worth a read. O’ReillyNet interviews Cory Doctorow.
I found this quote rather poignant and to the point:

But one thing you discover in the technology world, especially in free software, is that being a good programmer and being a good person are not necessarily correlated, or at least being a good programmer and being a person with whom other people want to spend a lot of time, who has good hygiene and good social skills, are not correlated.

Corey Doctorow wrote a really nice Sci-Fi Novel called Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. It’s freely available under the Creative Commons License. If you’re a Sci-Fi Fan I highly suggest taking a look or even better reading it for yourself.
