Viral Spiral: How the Commoners Built a Digital Republic of their Own

I just received a copy of David Bollier’s new book which goes out for sale today. I had the pleasure of meeting David on a few occasions where he asked all the right questions about the commons movement around the world. In the future, we’ll talk to our kids about this time, so it’s great to see the book as ‘the first comprehensive history of the attempt by a global brigade of techies, lawyers, artists, musicians, scientists, business people, innovators, and geeks of all stripes to create a digital republic committed to freedom, transparency, participation and innovation.’

You can buy a copy on Amazon or New Press. The inside cover of the book says that you can download a free, CC-licensed copy from onthecommons.org or viralspiral.cc but I can’t find the download link. Have asked David but if anyone finds it, please let me know 🙂

UPDATE: download the book for free at http://www.viralspiral.cc/download-book (thanks, Paul!)
