Turns out that there is this site, Textbook Torrents, that is using BitTorrent to distribute free copies of expensive textbooks. Also turns out that right now the site is down and/or removed from its host but that is not really the point.

Check out any site related to consumer spending indicies or the latest info on it. Like I said about iTunes, Apple came out of the gate charging 99 cents per MP4, whereas the competition was multiple dollars and those who weren’t paying and going via Torrents, were staying clear.

Turns out that there is this site, Textbook Torrents, that is using BitTorrent to distribute free copies of expensive textbooks.

Now, the torrent of information generated by the ever increasing stream of new developments has rendered this impossible. For example, I set up a Google search that limits what it finds to learning voices I trust; another pulls answers only from people on John Hagel’s blogroll.
