Download for Free

Below you'll find links to downloadable editions of the text of Content. These downloads are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-ShareAlike license, which lets you share it, remix it, and share your remixes, provided that you do so on a noncommercial basis.

It's kind of a tradition around here that my readers convert my ebooks to their favorite formats and send them to me here, and it's one that I love! If you've converted these files to another format, send them to me and I'll host them, but before you do, make sure you read the following:

  • Only one conversion per format, first come, first serve. That means that if someone's already converted the file to a Femellhebber 3000 document, that's the one you're going to find here. I just don't know enough about esoteric readers to adjudicate disputes about what the ideal format is for your favorite device.
  • Make sure include a link to the reader as well. When you send me an ebook file, make sure that you include a link to the website for the reader technology as well so that I can include it below.
  • No cover art. The text of this book is freely copyable, the cover, not so much. The rights to it are controlled by my publisher, so don't include it with your file.
  • No DRM. The Creative Commons license prohibits sharing the file with "DRM" (sometimes called "copy-protection") on it, and that's fine by me. Don't send me the book with DRM on it. If you're converting to a format that has a DRM option, make sure it's switched off.

    12. [...] Content by Cory Doctorow: Doctorow is mainly known for writing great fiction, but he also co-founded Boing Boing, and this collection of essays on the nature of content is outstanding. He is a great example of how to use “free” as a method for actually turning a profit. He’s tried numerous experiments in this regard, which is the essence of innovation. Question: why is it mainly authors that are doing these experiments, when it is publishers that are under threat? I wish I knew the answer… [...]

    17. [...] For my LIBR287 book report, I chose to read Content: Selected Essays on Technology, Creativity, Copyright, and the Future of the Future, which is a collection of essays written by Cory Doctorow. Doctorow is a science fiction novelist, a blogger, and technology activist writing for boingboing.net, Wired, and various other print and digital publications. The essays in Content discuss many thought provoking issues that are relevant to library services such as copyright, censorship, digital rights management, e-books, intellectual freedom, social networking. This e-book was the first book that caught my interest on the recommended reading list for the context book report, primarily due to the fact that the entire text was able to be downloaded for free here.
