I am @unhaunting, from The Twitter. After livetweeting my brief and painful time spent with Cory Doctorow’s short story Anda’s Game, I have resolved to read a chapter of his novel Little Brother a day, because I hate myself. I will strive to offer an extremely unsympathetic, nitpicky and ideologically motivated critique of this book. I hope to hit “funny”, but I’ll settle for “hateful and vitriolic”.
I am doing this because Doctorow is the ur-Nerd, and it is every morally upright person’s responsibility to combat Nerdism in the home and workplace. I will elaborate on my theoretical perspective, as well as what I mean by Nerdism, if the text makes it necessary, but for now, just assume that my theoretical perspective is “fuck nerds”.
The URL is taken from Anda’s Game, where Doctorow takes great pains to draw our attention to the practical and reasonable quality of various imaginary women’s breasts. He does it because of feminism.
