Conversation and Community ebook now Free

Anne Gentle has decided that it’s time to take Conversation and Community: The Social Web for Documentation out of print. The social media landscape has changed radically in just a few years. While the information in the book is still valid and relevant, there are trends and technologies that were not in existence when Anne wrote the most recent edition, so she has decided that the best course is to take the book out of print and make it available for free.

Anne’s work history includes experience with open source materials, and in that work she developed an appreciation for attribution and open materials. As a result, this book is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 Unported License, which is available at (you can get a more detailed description of this license on the Conversation and Community book page).

You can download the book for free in ePub, Kindle, and PDF formats at the XML Press eBook Store. The process is the same as buying any ebook in the store, but the price is $0.00.

This does mean that the print and ebook editions will no longer be available through traditional channels (Amazon, etc.).
