New Cory Doctorow Book Available for Free Download (Under Creative Commons)

Overclocked_2A cou­ple weeks ago, we told you about
45 recent­ly pub­lished books, most of them of very high
qual­i­ty, that you can down­load for free under a Cre­ative Com­mons license. Giv­en the exu­ber­ant response to that post, it seemed worth men­tion­ing that Cory Doc­torow — the sci-fi author, Boing­Bo­ing blog­ger, and advo­cate of open­ing up copy­right restric­tions — is now releas­ing a new col­lec­tion of short sto­ries called Over­clocked. As usu­al, you can buy the book, down­load the short sto­ries for free, or do both. It’s your call. He fig­ures he’ll win either way. And, by the way, you can freely down­load the rest of Doc­torow’s books here.

Now, final­ly, it’s worth point­ing out that the Boing­Bo­ing (iTunesfeed) crowd has a pod­cast worth check­ing out. The lat­est episode — the first 10 min­utes, in fact — gives you some of Doc­torow’s thoughts on what the future of e‑books looks like, the pros and cons, etc.  Cer­tain­ly worth a lis­ten. Enjoy.
