Still waiting

Well, I still don't have my copy of Decoding Liberation just yet, but I'm optimistic it'll happen soon. But we've started to line up some dates for book-release related events. One will be at Brecht Forum (October 3rd) where Biella Coleman will comment on/discuss the book with Scott and myself. The second will be at Labyrinth Books (November 2nd), with a similar format (commentator yet to be determined). We've put up a llittle page (also linked on the right-hand sidebar) with information on the book, including an introduction, links to the author's home pages, the back cover and blurb, and a listing of release events. Watch that space. And this one.

Why is the book (apparently) released under a traditional, non-free license, that prohibits sharing and the making of derivative works?

A long story, but one that can be reduced to, in essence, a story about us not having enough power early in the business of negotiations with the publisher. We did try for a more open license, but that discussion went nowhere (as did discussions about price and a paperback version). It was our first time through this process and we weren't sure of how many options we had.
