From official release/information:
In this collection of stories by SF author, technopundit, uber-geek, and now college professor Cory Doctorow, you'll find a half dozen award worthy stories about the "future present", with brilliant extrapolations "ripped from the headlines" and recast as tales of tomorrow. This is what SF has always done, though rarely with the self awareness Cory brings to the stage. Each short story is an idea bomb with a candy coating of human drama, wrapped in shiny tech tropes and ready to blow your mind. Overclocked is SF info-warfare ammunition of the highest caliber, so load up, move out, and take no prisoners...let Asimov sort em out.
