Next Techdirt Book Club Book: Cory Doctorow's Pirate Cinema

from the join-us dept

It's time to announce the latest Techdirt Book Club book: Cory Doctorow's excellent new book Pirate Cinema. Many of you may have picked it up in the recent Humble Ebook Bundle that it was a part of. If not, you can, as always download it from Cory's site. Of course, if you'd like to support Cory, there are plenty options for buying the book as well. Sometime at the end of the month or (more likely, given the holidays) beginning of January, Cory will join us here for a video chat like previous authors. If you haven't read it already, please check it out.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Well, chop out the COMMERCIAL INTERLUDES, it's about 740K.

    Those are REALLY annoying even in the text version, guys. I doubt that interrupting about a dozen times is useful. FAR TOO MANY, turns reader against you. Make your pitch only at start and end.

    Otherwise. Gave it a fair chance for near half an hour yet never got the least hint of a plot or purpose. I think it fair to say that one of the most important points for the "give away and pray" notion is that the product must have some merit or appeal. But, IF this person is getting money for such, proves there's a market for nearly anything, only need to learn how make a splash and get noticed...
