Online Workers of the Future Unite!

Corey Doctorow is a well-known speculative fiction writer who is also something of an online activist and a new media critic (see his work re. Creative Commons licensing and his time at the New Frontiers Foundation.

Corey's latest book is about the struggle of young online workers to organize. If that doesn’t grab you the title will: For the Win: Organize to Survive. It's tagged with 'young adult fiction' but I had a fine time with it (OK, that might say more about me than about the book) and it's getting great reviews.

Download it for free at Corey’s own website HERE.

Since some seem to think that the fact the book is available online for free indicates it's trash, know that I decided to pay for a hard cover edition and that it is also available in paperback.

But Cory is an author and activist who puts his money (or lack thereof) where his mouth is. Hence the PDF edition.
