I’m going to buy Cory Doctorow’s Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom.
He’s distributing his book online for free at the above site. I want to reward this guy, monetarily, for being such a good sport. And I want to let his publisher know that they’ve got my support for them to be moving in this direction too. It seems like, in these cases, money speaks louder than words.
If only they’d had something like this when I was a kid…………… This is amazing.
(all the cornucopia of frazzling wompers! yeehaw!)
Increasingly, I find that it’s this kind of thing that makes my brain curl in pleasing ways. Is this the big idea that I’m latching onto? It’s hard to tell. I’m more interested about this, in a hobbyhorse kind of way, than anything that I’ve been exposed to in the last few years.
It’s not available at the library yet. Damn these 2003 book titles! Trying to catch up with a 21st century technology using 15th century technology…
Free, public libraries are a resource that must be defended.
