The Art of Community – Now Free

Jono Bacon has released his book “The Art of Community” under a Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike Creative Commons license, which means you can download and read it legally.

If you like it, follow the author’s advice:

  • Firstly, buying a copy sends a tremendous message to O’Reilly that they should continue to publish books (a) about community and (b) under a Creative Commons license.
  • Secondly, it will encourage O’Reilly to invest in a second edition of the book down the line, which will in turn mean that communities around the world will have a refreshed and updated edition that is available to them.
  • Thirdly, aside from the voting-with-your-feet side of things, it is just a really nice book to own in print. It is really well made, looks stunning and feels great to curl up with in a coffee shop or on the couch.
