Based on a tip from publishing guru Eoin Purcell, and following the clever example of Joe Konrath, I am soliciting reviews of A History of the Internet and the Digital Future from bloggers of all hues. A free copy of the book will be posted to you in return for a review (of more than 75 words). And I will of course link to your review from this page/site.
(email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your blog and postal address where the book can be sent to)
UPDATE: (17:21, 28 September 2010) So far Kevin Kelly (founder of Wired and former editor of the Whole Earth Catalogue), Cory Doctorow (of Boing Boing), Jeff Jarvis (Buzz Machine), Adam Elkus (Huffington Post and Rethinking Security), Kathryn Greenhill (Librarians Matter), Rick Shera (Law Geeknz), Tyler Cowan (Marginal Revolution), and George Murray (Book Ninja) have expressed interest. Blogs like Marginal Revolution have approx 30k views per day, and Librarians Matter has 1,800 subscribers.
This is great! The problem is that my publisher has set aside 10 copies (ten) for me to send to bloggers, and in the absence of an e-version, because they hold the rights to that, I have to beg that prospective reviews contact the publishers directly (email@example.com).
