My Book is Out Now!

Book cover: Digital Culture IndustryDigital Culture Industry:
A History of Digital Distribution

I’m very happy to announce that my book is finally out with Palgrave Macmillan.

If you’re interested in the history of peer-to-peer piracy and how it shaped digital media today this is the book for you. Covering MP3.com, Napster, GNUtella, Kazaa, Streamcast, Grokster, BitTorrent and The Pirate Bay this comprehensive history is a great read for anyone interested in the field of digital media.

….if I do say so myself.

For a more comprehensive overview of the book head over to the book page where you can see reviews and chapter summaries.

There was a lot of research that went into the book, and a lot of resources to boot. If you’d like to see some of the things I made related to the book head over to this blog post and also take a look at the resources.

Historical Research Online – Prezi

I had a few requests for access to the presentation I used to deliver my paper at the OII Symposium last week; so here it is in its wizzy glory.

You can use the arrow keys to move back and forth through the set path (the structured way) but also drag around to make your own way through it. Also if you go to ‘More’ you can go full-screen for better viewing.

Enjoy!

Oii: A Decade in Internet Time

I’m in Oxford at the moment at the Oii Symposium ‘A Decade in Internet Time’. It’s been a lot of fun, I got to present my research have some great feedback from interesting people. The paper I presented is available on the SSRN and you can grab a copy if you like. The conference still has a few days left so I’ll try and cobble something insightful (passable) together when I get home.
