Homeland

In Cory Doctorow's wildly successful Little Brother, young Marcus Yallow was arbitrarily detained and brutalized by the government in the wake of a terrorist attack on San Francisco'an experience that led him to become a leader of the whole movement of technologically clued-in teenagers, fighting back against the tyrannical security state. A few years later, California's economy collapses, but Marcus's hacktivist past lands him a job as webmaster for a crusading politician who promises reform. Soon his former nemesis Masha emerges from the political underground to gift him with a thumbdrive containing a Wikileaks-style cable-dump of hard evidence of corporate and governmental perfidy. It's incendiary stuff'and if Masha goes missing, Marcus is supposed to release it to the world. Then Marcus sees Masha being kidnapped by the same government agents who detained and tortured Marcus years earlier. Marcus can leak the archive Masha gave him'but he can't admit to being the leaker, because that will cost his employer the election. He's surrounded by friends who remember what he did a few years ago and regard him as a hacker hero. He can't even attend a demonstration without being dragged onstage and handed a mike. He's not at all sure that just dumping the archive onto the Internet, before he's gone through its millions of words, is the right thing to do. Meanwhile, people are beginning to shadow him, people who look like they're used to inflicting pain until they get the answers they want. Fast-moving, passionate, and as current as next week, Homeland is every bit the equal of Little Brother'a paean to activism, to courage, to the drive to make the world a better place.

  • "Netzfreiheit Marcus Yallow ist zwar noch jung, aber er ist bereits ein Held. Ein Hacker und Untergrundheld, um genau zu sein. Denn Marcus hat zusammen mit anderen Jugendlichen beschlossen, den Kampf gegen einen scheinbar allmächtigen Überwachungsstaat aufzunehmen. Als Marcus eines Tages einen USB-Stick voll streng geheimer Regierungsdaten zugespielt bekommt, steht er vor der Entscheidung seines Lebens - denn wenn er diese Daten veröffentlicht, bricht die Hölle los. Seitdem der junge Marcus als Hacker und Aktivist aufgetreten ist, hat er überall in den Vereinigten Staaten Fans und Nachahmer. Inzwischen ist er ein Held des Widerstands gegen die allgegenwärtige Überwachungstechnologie der Heimatschutzbehörde. Gleichzeitig arbeitet er als Webmaster für einen aufstrebenden Politiker, der genau diesen Zustand verändern will. Doch dann bekommt Marcus von Masha, einer früheren Gegenspielerin, einen USB-Stick mit brandheissen und streng vertraulichen Daten zugesteckt, die er nun veröffentlichen soll. Er zögert, denn wenn er sich dazu bekennt, kostet ihn das seinen Job - und wenn er nicht mitspielt, machen die Behörden einfach weiter. Was soll er tun? Und dann sind da auch noch die verdächtigen Gestalten, die Marcus immer engmaschiger beschatten. Kann er die Bombe platzen lassen? Es gibt nur einen Weg, das herauszufinden ... Cory Doctorow, 1971 in Toronto geboren, ist Schriftsteller, Journalist und Internet-Ikone. Mit dem Blog biongbiong.net und seinem Kampf für ein faires Copyright hat er weltweite Bekanntheit erlangt. Sein erster Jugendroman 'Little Brother' wurde ein internationaler Bestseller. Cory Doctorow ist verheiratet, hat eine Tochter und lebt in London."
