Update: How to Get “Free” Anywhere

Ok, sor­ry to bela­bor this. Ear­li­er today, I men­tioned that you could down­load the audio­book of Chris Ander­son­’s Free: The Future of a Rad­i­cal Price at Audi­ble for no cost. It turns out that the Audi­ble offer isn’t avail­able to a world­wide audi­ence. It may just be avail­able to US res­i­dents. The good news is that I pinged Chris Ander­son on Twit­ter, and asked if there’s a uni­ver­sal ver­sion out there. And he kind­ly point­ed me in the right direc­tion. Here’s the deal: you can get a uni­ver­sal­ly free ver­sion over on Wired’s web­site. The page is here, and the zip file is here. Hope that helps.

Note: I’ve added Ander­son­’s zip file to our col­lec­tion of Free Audio Books. There, I’ve also recent­ly added a cou­ple of relat­ed works: Lawrence Lessig’s Free Cul­ture and Cory Doc­torow’s Con­tent: Select­ed Essays on Tech­nol­o­gy, Cre­ativ­i­ty, Copy­right and the Future of the Future . You can find them housed under Non-Fic­tion.
