Pixel Nation: 80 Weeks of World Wide Wade

2/5/10Follow @wroush

I love Thursdays, because that’s the day I get to sit down and write World Wide Wade, my wide-ranging column on digital media and Internet culture. We launched the the column in April 2008 and somehow–without really being conscious of it—I’ve now written 80 of the things. We decided to mark the occasion by collecting all of the columns in the form of an e-book called Pixel Nation: 80 Weeks of World Wide Wade.

Pixel Nation, Kindle EditionNot only does the e-book bring all of the columns together in one easy-to-read place, but it includes a new introduction and updates on many of the early columns (which, frankly can benefit from some updating in the fast-moving world of high-tech).

There are several ways to read the e-book. It’s embedded below as a Scribd document, so you can read it right here in your browser, if you like. We’re also offering a free PDF version that you can read on your PC—to get that, just click on the “Download” link in the Scribd window below. Finally, there’s a $4.99 Kindle version that you can read on your Amazon Kindle or your iPhone. You can find that on Amazon’s website or by searching the Kindle Store on your device.

For more on how we created the e-book, and some of the issues facing authors who want to self-publish their books electronically, see my February 5, 2010 column, which is also the final chapter in the book.

Enjoy! I’d love to hear your feedback about the e-book—write to me at wroush@xconomy.com.
