Walkaway - Ch. 2 

If you like the idea of fabrication in Walkaway and what it means to make things that corporations might not like, check out Doctorow's short story Printcrime

Economists have a sci-fi book club and discuss the different economies in the books and they did Walkaway.

Some spoilers in it, but think it's just in the first few chapters.

Walkaway, like Chapter 11ish? 

Heard this podcast with Doctorow where he mentions his grandfather had some blighted land (that companies dumped chemicals on that might have caused him cancer.)

Could that be inspiration for the places Walkaways set up?

Want a little more Walkaway? Doctorow also wrote a novella called Party Discipline, about highschoolers without much prospects after graduating.

If you read past the first chapter of Walkaway, not really any spoilers in this.

Walkaway, Ch. 1 

Will only consider #TechnicolorRainbow book club a success when someone else unprompted decides a book we'll be reading.

Did this away from home on mobile, will add more to it when at a proper PC. Of course any one welcome to do it up right with anything they felt is missing.
