    Willam Gibson, +1000. Yoko Ono, -10000. I guess they have to pay me to read this one.

      Lecti, Yoko Ono’s piece is about a page and a half, so please, if you don’t want to read it don’t. The best parts in this book belong not to professionals or the famous but to those who were there. Spend the lousy 10 bucks and if you can tell me you weren’t the least bit affected by this book I’ll donate yet another 1000 yen to Red cross on your behalf.

    Just hoping that the use of the poster by Canadian signalnoise for the digital ‘cover’ of the book is being acknowledged.

    Magnitude 5+ aftershocks off the coast of Honshu are a daily fact of life in Japan, recently. And the beating goes on….

    Give a little, learn a lot, help the people in Japan. It’s a great read. It captures a moment of history from the viewpoint of many. The essays and short-pieces are moving and unforgettable.
