Bringing Something to the Party

I just noticed that Paul Carr has released his new book, “Bringing Nothing to the Party: True Confessions of a New Media Whore” as a Creative Commons BY-NC  licensed download for the US. And the, um, rest of the internet.

I’m going to read it on my hot new Droid phone, but there’s only a PDF version and an HTML version. I want ePub format, so I converted it.  You can download the ePub version of “Bringing Nothing to the Party” here.

It looks like Paul has put a CC-BY-NC license in his blog post, but has put also ND in his text.  He’s also been thankful for a derivative work before, so I think he really means BY-NC.  Regardless, if he asks me to take down the ePub, I will.  You gotta make sure CC licenses actually match up with what you want.

But wait, there's more

  1. Thanks for sharing that. Would you mind posting a link to a free reader or something I can use to read the .epub file on my PC?
