Firstly, here's the new issue of TechKNOW, out of Kent State U. I stuck more stuff I stole from Alterman behind the cut.
BTW, speaking of Alterman: I think the guy's a snob, but I've never met him and my opinion really doesn't count, anyway. The fact is he's a great writer, and he wrote a terrific article for this book which has been on the shelves for a while now. (Buy the book.) The publishers are the same people who published this book, which you should also buy. (Buy this book, too.) Finally, I met this author at her book release party a couple of weeks ago and this author, who just got back from the Daily Kos road show in Vegas, a month or so ago at his book release event, and you should buy these books too.
(The fact that these books are published by my brother-in-law does not in any way mean that they're not worth shelling out money for. Remember (I say as I flick the 'on' switch to my MIB neuralizer), the small press is good . . . the small press is good . . . buy these books . . .)
