New Book: Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom

I just added Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow to the site. If the name Cory Doctorow sounds familiar, it might be because you’ve read his posts on BoingBoing or various other print and online media. You might be thinking that this book doesn’t really fit in with the rest of the books since it was published in 2003 but luckily Cory released it on a Creative Commons license. His site has a short post describing why he is releasing his books this way. It’s great to see someone adapting to and profiting from technology instead of trying to lock their creations down as tightly as possible. After hearing good things about his writing (although come to think of it most of it was on BoingBoing), I’m looking forward to reading this one.

    It was pretty good. A good take an aspect of the modern world and extend it type of book. I ended up reading ahead and finishing it early. A nice modern break from all the older books on here.
