Jan Rubak, a Canadian mathematician/physicist, has been reading aloud all the essays from my collection Content: Selected Essays on Technology, Creativity, Copyright and the Future of the Future and uploading them to the Internet Archive, and this week, he finished! He’s even included some bonus material from John Perry Barlow. These are great readings and this was a gigantic undertaking — thanks, Jan!

I’ve included a bonus chapter at the end with Barlow’s “Economy of Ideas” plus a somewhat impassioned reading of “A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace” to round out the whole experience.

Sometime in the next month or two, I’ll also upload some afterthoughts of my own as a final entry (but first I’m going to listen to the whole thing through from start to finish).

    Cool, another goodie to stick on the mp3 player for when I’m running! I read the first few stories in Content a while back but then the USB drive I had my copy on died and I kept forgetting to download it again. It’s cracking stuff, really gets the blood boiling at times :-)

    2/3 of the way through Little Brother now, loving every second and going to hand in my copy to the school down the road for their library once I’m finished (if they’re allowed to accept such donations…)

    Wonderful stuff! Jan, you have a voice that is delightful to listen to, which really complements Cory’s writing. A million thanks to both of you!
