Books and Countries[edit]

I'm not a regular editor and please excuse me if I'm going about this wrong, but I'm curious about how the countries are chosen for Doctorow's books. Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is listed as Canadian but most of the others are of the United States. Why are the books of Canadian born author living in London considered to be of the United States? Maybe it's a publishing thing but if it's an issue with the wikipedia pages I feel they should be addressed. And I probably won't be following up on this, it's just something I think should be brought to your attention. --12:05, 30 March 2013 (PST) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.77.144.186 (talk)

The country in the book infobox is supposed to be the country of original publication. Which means Down and Out should probably say USA as well, unless you count the simulataneous release of the electronic version as having taken place in Canada. -- 76.15.128.226 (talk) 14:28, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Modern Poland Foundation[edit]

According to [1] by Julia Reda, Doctorow represents/belongs to Modern Poland Foundation. Worth looking for some source perhaps. --Nemo 10:15, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

I can't find any connection other than him being a keynote speaker at CopyCamp 2014. --Guy Macon (talk) 10:35, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
