Vontorson: A super-ground-breaking-author-extraordinaire!

For my second contribution to FTR! For the Remix!, I wanted to do a traditional DS106 assignment. And given that Cory Doctorow is a famous science fiction/cyberpunk author, creating a Troll Quote seemed appropriate. I used a quote from Kurt Vonnegut (or rather, an extracted quote for the sake of convenience), this image of Cory Doctorow, and attributed it to William Gibson.

CoryMisquote_web I suppose one reason why I like combining these three authors is that each was ground breaking in his own way. Kurt Vonnegut brought science fiction to the mainstream and experimented a great deal in format, using humor, non-linear narrative, and narrators with personality. William Gibson is often credited as the founder of cyberpunk. And Cory Doctorow was the first author to publish a novel under a creative commons license. Together they make a super-ground-breaking-author-extraordinaire! Or a troll. Your pick.
