Default Novel: "For the Win" by Cory Doctorow

For the Win by Cory Doctorow - Free eBook

For The Win News

I know this is late as far as the release date of it (came out a few months ago), but I've been a fan of this author for a bit for various reasons (one of the main ones being his huge support for creative commons license on books).

You can download the free (yes, completely free, one of the reasons I like this guy) e-book at either of those two sites (the second one is his own website) and read if you want to.

I'm posting it because the subject matter is a bit relevant, it's basically a novel about MMOs (more specifically about the economies in online games) through the eyes of gold farm workers, Pros in the games, and high school kids with a gaming addiction.

I've been reading it a bit and thought I'd share the book. So far, I like it, and if borders will actually carry it I'll probably go buy it when I have money. There are a few inaccuracies as far as the MMO information goes, but oh well, it's entertaining and gets his point across so *shrug*.
