Free e-book: My Digital Generation

Our good friend Shaun McGill, of PDA24/7 fame, has recently made his e-book available for free on request.
Quote:
If you would like a copy, please send an email to shaun (at) mailstm.co.uk with "My Digital Generation" in the title and you will be sent the book in a ZIP file containing Palm Doc, Word and Text formats.
"I was born in 1970, and thus fall perfectly into the group of people who are now fascinated with modern technology and the seemingly new inventions that hit the world every week. From the iPod to super smart mobile phone, you cannot help but be involved in one way or another. Our lives are dominated by the Internet and the multitude of devices we use to connect to this big beast that sits in the background of everything we do. From every financial transaction we make to playing games in virtual worlds with friends who are not real friends, from downloading the latest music releases to watching films and TV episodes the day they are released, and most worryingly just surfing for the hell of it because if you dare to touch the Internet you can in theory surf it for the rest of your life and still only see less than 1% of the content held within. You can surf forever and find out whatever you need to know- whether what you see is factual is a different matter..."

If you give it a read, let us know what you think of it!

Thanks for the Heads up, Bob. Have been looking for more non-fiction to add to the Reader.

Near as I can find (http://www.clieuk.co.uk/mdg/mdg.html)

He is now asking for $1.50 via paypal with the proceeds being given to charity..

Quote:
I have also decided to charge $1.50 for the book with all profits after PayPal charges going to Save The Children- even if I only get to send them $100 it is some reward for the time involved.
Still well worth it in my book...

(I'm not sure if this is a no-brainer, but he's not using an auto-replier to send out the books. So, y'know, be polite and thankful, etc.)

great read, if you were born around the same time (as i was) - it will also bring back a flood of memories of some older technologies - thanks shaun for a great contribution.

Actually I was born in the 40's and it was still a good read. I had indoor plumbing although my grandparents did not. I also had a TV by the end of the 40's but the technology has converged over the years so that he did catch up so to speak . I have been thinking about a technology history blog of some of my personal experiences. This may kick me into action. I do have some personal experience on computers as old as the Bendix G-15.
