Talking For the Win, copyright and iPads with ABC News

Last week I did a quick, fun interview with ABC News in New York, outside one of the bigger Apple Stores. We talked For the Win, the iPad, and copyright reform. The ABC folks were good enough to put the video online and make an embed available, too.

Coming to New York Public Library this morning, 10AM

FTW tour: Austin tomorrow, EFF benefit tonight, library donors needed!


Hey, Austinites! I'm headed your way tomorrow (Thurs) for the next leg of my book-tour. I'll be reading at BookPeople at 7PM, and then heading to EFF-Austin's WhuffieFest, a fundraiser/party at Amelia’s RetroVogue and Relics, 2213 South 1st Street in the 78704. I haven't been to Austin since SXSW 2003, and I can't wait to get back!

Tonight's my last night in San Francisco, and it's the capstone of the Bay Area leg: the Electronic Frontier Foundation fundraiser/party at the 111 Minna Gallery at 7:30. I'm really looking forward to this -- a great way to end a fantastic stop in one of the cities of my heart.

After Austin, it's off to Cary, NC (Saturday) and Chapel Hill, NC (Sunday), then New York and Brooklyn, and finally Toronto, my hometown. Here's the full tour schedule.

A reminder to fans of the free download: there's an amazing list of libraries, schools, youth shelters, halfway houses and other worthy institutions that are looking for donations of copies of the book. If you liked the ebook and want to thank me, the best way to do that is to donate a copy to one of them.
