Just to let you know that if you read and enjoy the free version - you
have a moral obligation to get the tree version.

Why not save a tree and donate to the authors instead?

Normally I'd complain that donating to the authors didn't help the
rest of the publishing system (publisher, editor, copywriter, etc.),
but in this case the book is published by an author's own small press,
so that'll work.

Thanks for the thought, but no donations necessary. The book was an
experiment, and we've nearly sold out of our print run. There are no plans
to run another, so we figured we would just give the book away now :)

I suppose you could donate the money to the IxDA in my name, and if I raise
enough, maybe Dave will give me a plaque. I've always wanted a plaque.

As one of the contributing authors, sure I'd be happy to take
donations ;-)

But seriously I'm glad to see this finally free and available for mass
consumption. Jon's effort was quite tremendous, resulting in what may
become one of the cornerstones of a growing substantive body of
knowledge that future designers (interaction or beyond) will tap into
for inspiration. Kudos!

(and yes, it is a nice reflection of the CMU approach to design ;-)
