TOR does some interesting things.

http://www.tor.com/

Almost all the way down the front page is a link to a very cute short cat story.

The Cat Who Walked a Thousand Miles by BY KIJ JOHNSON illustration by GONI MONTES

http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=...story&id=37684

Link to download links in various flavors on the left side.

And they are also publishing Cory Doctorow’s "Makers" in 81 parts,

now on part 5 (no download links though)

Thanks for the links, Karma coming your way

Just one question, because I haven't been following the Doctorow postings, is the work being proofread as a crowd sourced initiative? I noticed several postings that pointed out typos in the text.

Link to the Announcement post which explains what they are doing.

http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=...=blog&id=37468

They email me all sorts of announcements and links, most of which I don't pay much attention to as they rarely have things that interest me. I signed up with them when they were giving away some cool books, they haven't done that in awhile.

Thanks again Seems like the typo fixing is a side-benefit of the process of serialisation.

Yeah, I started reading that Tor site after I googled across this article by Jo Walton who regularly blogs there. http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=...=blog&id=31777

I've been reading her blog and much of the whole site ever since.
