the late age of print

This has been an overwhelmingly busy week, so posting has been light, but I have to pause in the midst of the uproar to commend to you Ted Striphas's website The Late Age of Print — and to point out that the book of that name, published by Columbia University Press, is now available as a PDF download under a Creative Commons license. Striphas comments that his is the first book that Columbia has released in this way. Columbia is here following the example of Yale UP, which recently made James Boyle's The Public Domain available via download under the CC license. I haven't finished reading either book yet, but both are fascinating, and I hope to comment on them later.
