4 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information Doesn't Want to Be Free takes on the state of copyright and creative success in the digital age. Can small artists still thrive in the Internet era? Can giant record labels avoid alienating their audiences? This is a book about the pitfalls and the opportunities that creative industries (and individuals) are confronting today -- about how the old models have failed or found new footing, and about what might soon replace them. Information Doesn't Want to Be Free offers a guide to the ways creativity and the Internet interact today, and to what might be coming next
Theatre is evil by Amanda Palmer( Recording )

The queen of punk cabaret Amanda Palmer, returns to Australia this Jan/Feb 2011. Amanda Palmer Goes Down Under: An Australia Day Spectacular will be a deliciously dark evening of songs celebrating our weird and wonderful National day at The Sydney Opera House. Known for her years of punk cabaret with The Dresden Dolls, Amanda calls the album a "sonic gift to her antipodean family".

Walkaway by Cory Doctorow( Recording )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cory Doctorow's first adult novel in eight years is an epic tale of revolution, love, post-scarcity, and the end of death. Hubert Vernon Rudolph Clayton Irving Wilson Alva Anton Jeff Harley Timothy Curtis Cleveland Cecil Ollie Edmund Eli Wiley Marvin Ellis Espinoza-- known to his friends as Hubert, Etc-- was too old to be at that Communist party. But after watching the breakdown of modern society, he really has no where left to be-- except among the dregs of disaffected youth who party all night and heap scorn on the sheep they see on the morning commute. Falling in with Natalie, an ultrarich heiress trying to escape the clutches of her repressive father, the two decide to give up fully on formal society-- and walk away. After all, now that anyone can design and print the basic necessities of life-- food, clothing, shelter-- from a computer, there seems to be little reason to toil within the system. It's still a dangerous world out there, the empty lands wrecked by climate change, dead cities hollowed out by industrial flight, shadows hiding predators, animal and human alike. Still, when the initial pioneer walkaways flourish, more people join them. Then the walkaways discover the one thing the ultrarich have never been able to buy: how to beat death. Now it's war, a war that will turn the world upside down. Fascinating, moving, and darkly humorous, [this book] is a multigenerational SF thriller about the wrenching changes of the next hundred years-- and the very human people who will live their consequences

The art of asking, or, How I learned to stop worrying and let people help by Amanda Palmer( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When we really see each other, we want to help each other' - Amanda Palmer Imagine standing on a box in the middle of a busy city, dressed as a white-faced bride, and silently using your eyes to ask people for money. Or touring Europe in a punk cabaret band, and finding a place to sleep each night by reaching out to strangers on Twitter. For Amanda Palmer, actions like these have gone beyond satisfying her basic needs for food and shelter - they've taught her how to turn strangers into friends, build communities, and discover her own giving impulses. And because she had learned how to ask, she was able to go to the world to ask for the money to make a new album and tour with it, and to raise over a million dollars in a month. In The Art of Asking, Palmer expands upon her popular TED talk to reveal how ordinary people, those of us without thousands of Twitter followers and adoring fans, can use these same principles in our own lives
