Whoah! Only 41 left! All gone. Look for the PDF tomorrow!

Thanks, everyone — we sold out in eight hours.

Man - Kottke has struck again.

I've been in class all day! I just ran to a library terminal to buy it. The first time paypal told me the transaction didn't go through. I thought I was too late, and I was actually tearing up. Then I tried again and it worked--I hope!

Wow. As of 7:40 PM Eastern Time, it's gone. And I didn't even get my Wordwright post up. I will guard my contributor's copy zealously.

I'm absolutely furious that they're sold out. I think it's a conspiracy to prevent the masses from knowing anything about the new liberal arts or your collective brilliance.

I demand a second printing and I demand that mine be signed. AND...ok I don't have anything else to add, but I'm really really upset.

Don't blame Jason Kottke; I'd say that it was "piggies like me" except that I don't actually know that anybody else bought, as I did, two copies. Hoarding! My plan to give the second copy to some deserving friend is really just so much crap, considering the demonstrable interest of frustrated buyers.


I'd still consider a print copy if you make more. If you put 'em on Amazon, I'll ask my local library to get one.

Wow! Congratulations. I'm really looking forward to my copy!
