Taken Down

John Connell, Weblog, Jun 21, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

So the battle over online publications begins. There is certainly an irony in a large corporate publisher issuing a takedown order against a website posting a Marxist text. John Connell writes of "the shameful campaign against one of the Web's greatest ever resources, (along with further discussion later on the same blog)" from the Mitochondrial Vertigo blog. I've been following aaaarg for a while now - it's right up my alley, specializing in radical, socialist and underground texts - the exact sort of texts you can count on the publishing industry to swallow up and make 'unavailable'. Aaarg isn't dead, but I think it's going to go pretty underground now. It's definitely not going to go away.
