  1. How come I saw this on a shelf in a bookstore in Camden, Maine (I think) three weeks ago? I saw it, and thought, huh, why haven’t I seen this mentioned on the innertubes?

  2. The distributors shipped some orders early — but the official launch date isn’t for another week yet.

  4. Awesome. I am excited to read ‘content’ and had not heard about it until now. (Of course I just recently purchased and read Overclocked, slow on the uptake I guess.) I gifted a new copy of DOIMK to Caleb Chung (pleo robot/Furby) the other day. Also I just updated my Whuffie blog with the new graphics I had been working on. Take a look.

    My take on just the first essay.

    Absolutely brilliant stuff.

  7. Wow…picked it up in Charlotte, NC about a week and a half ago. I’m about three essays in and find it really informative. Definitely not a dull read either, as your speeches tend to be entertaining as well.
    Saw some signed copies of Futuristic Tales down here, too. You didn’t have a book signing down here, did you?

  8. Nope — they’re ALL signed! I ssigned about SIX THOUSAND tip-in sheets!

  9. Started reading this online a little while ago and was captivated. to drag myself away and get back to looming deadlines. This thing is addictive! I’m going to enjoy this over the next few days. Great ideas here. Listen up Washington!

  10. I bought this on a whim last week (3rd) in Mtn View, CA. Read it over the weekend and enjoyed it very much. I’m reminded that if it wasn’t for your free stuff, I probably would never have bought any of your books (this is the 2nd), so I may be another datum that fits your model.

    I was particularly impressed by your analysis of paper vs electronic books. Do you have any thoughts on other media, like music or video, of are these forms already too close in format to the pure electronic downleads to work in your business model?

  12. picked your book (actual papery one) immediately after I got hired to work for a blog, just finished it. now i think too much about the internet! but in a good way. i very much like your comparisons to older technology (vcr, piano roll, luther bible), and can’t stop thinking about that singularity, and am a little scared now. Thanks Cory!
