  5. In the past 2 mnths, I’ve read all of the free downloads of all of your books as mobi files. I’ve also pushed good friends to read you – and they have. I’ve ordered Little Brother from Amazon, which is expensive from South Africa – but hey, the 12 buck shipping fee was paid for by mturk work. I ordered it as a gift for 2 very cool teenagers, one of whom started reading it on my phone a while back. Being a completist sort of a nerd, I shall order the rest gradually, by the “grace” of turk work. Actually that seems like the perfect trade for your words – virtual sweatshoppery. For The Win is a great read and will be the next thing I buy the kids for sure. You’ve reached beyond Gibson’s firstworld dystopia and spec fic and pulled the genre into a very elegant global relevance indeed. I wanted all the stories in Overclocked to be novels. In a way, I’m addressing all this effusive warble at your books, rather than you as a human being. I hope you have read Kate Bornstein and Caitlin Sullivan’s Nearly Roadkill.

    I am v puzzled as to why more people don’t follow your lead ito drm and copyright issues. Visionary and so realistic.

    (I blame any typos on this phone’s teeny keypad).

    Thank you for the words and dreams and data.

  6. Hi, Just finished reading this, and planning on getting ahold of the paper copy as soon as possible :) the book is excellent, and as someone who plays a lot of games and has a lot of friends from singapore and china, including some gold-farmers, the depth with which it’s been researched makes it all the more captivating.

    Planning to try a few of your other efforts now, here’s hoping they’re all as enjoyable!

  14. From Dagens Nyheter (Todays News, a leading Swedish newspaper):

    Kinesisk polis mot arbetarupplopp

    13 juni 2011 kl 15:46, uppdaterad: 13 juni 2011 kl 15:51

    Uppretade arbetare i Kina har i flera dagar trotsat polisen och dragit fram på gatorna i Zengcheng nära Kanton i södra Kina. De har satt eld på statliga byggnader, vält polisbilar och krossat fönster.

    Bakgrunden ska vara att säkerhetsvakter trakasserat en ung gravid kvinna.

    Kravallpolis försökte stävja upploppen, som hade tusentalet deltagare. Polisen sköt med tårgas på söndagskvällen och satte handklovar på gripna, rapporterar flera medier.

    Google translation:

    Chinese police against workers riot

    June 13, 2011, at 15:46, Updated: June 13, 2011 at 15:51

    Enraged workers in China has for several days defied the police and brought to light the streets of Zengcheng near Guangzhou in southern China. They have set fire to government buildings, overturning police cars and smashed windows.

    The background is security guards that supposedly harassed a young pregnant woman.

    Riot police tried to suppress the riots, which had a thousand participants. The police fired tear gas in on Sunday evening and handcuffed detainees, several media reports.
