Announcing a P2P Theory and Action book for 2013

After request by Glyn Moody, I'm putting this communication here on Ning as well.

Dear friends,



I feel it is really imperative that I write a book about the p2p transformations, and I plan to do this in the 2nd half of 2013. The problem is I can't afford to take time off without income, but lecturing tours pretty much preclude the concentration necessary for writing a…
