Blown to Bits -- Second Edition now available for free download!

 Blown to Bits: Your Life, Liberty, and Happiness After the Digital Explosion is now available in its second edition! This is the book about the the social consequences of the explosion in digital information that was first published in 2008. For the second edition, the original authors, myself, Hal Abelson, and Ken Ledeen, have been joined by Wendy Seltzer. The book has been out in hard copy and Kindle for several months, and we are now happy to make the digital version available for download under a Creative Commons license. I know several schools and colleges have used the first edition as the basis for discussions of legal and ethical issues in information technology and we are pleased to be able to make the new edition available on the same terms.

The book's site is under reconstruction, but if you click that link and go to the bottom of the page, there is a download link just above the Creative Commons copyright notice.
