Wired.com Geek Dad Feature–and Free Download

Okay–here’s an experiment, folks. Wired.com/Geek Dad ran an interview with me and Ann. Along with the interview, they’re offering a free download of “The Situation,” my book from PS Publishing. This is a first for me and for PS, in terms of offering an electronic copy of a book coming out in the same month. I’m buying into the whole idea of downloads resulting in sales. If it works out well, PS Publishing will probably do other offers like this, and some really cool stuff will become more widely available. Here’s the order page for The Situation, if you’re interested.

It’s a whole new world out there…

    Do you know when PS’ shipping this? Call me old fashioned, but I’ll wait for my hardcover. :)

  3. I’m mostly a lurker but I just wanted to say thanks Jeff.

  4. PS is shipping in about 2 weeks.

    Brian–thank YOU.

    Wow! That was quite an intricately woven image of the corporocracy that a lot of us are enduring. While I did just get a raise the other day, albeit no frog encased in clear flesh, I am leaving the company on my terms for something with more flexibility and a lot less implied recognition. Thanks for partnering up with Wired’s Geekdad to give some of us cubicle jockey’s a nice chortle during the day.

  6. Glad you enjoyed it. As you might imagine, I’ve experienced what you’re talking about first-hand, too.

    Good bit of timing, as I finally will have the money to spare for this in the coming weeks :D Shall be interesting to see if your story’s horrors will match up with the ones I’m about to face, as I think my new job shall require me to teach special ed to teen girls (if not the boys) at a residential treatment center. I wonder how many more ways a teen can say “motherfucker” as part of a general performance review…

    Thanks, Jeff.

    Bought and paid for my hardcover too. There’s just something about book production and everything that goes into it that still makes it worth having, and from the extract, this is very much worth having. Plus, reading off a computer screen hurts my poor degraded eyeballs…
