International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day

In light of the recent proclamation by Dr Howard V Hendrix, that anyone posting content on the internet for free were no better than scabs, categorised as:

someone who works for less than union wages or on non-union terms; more broadly, a scab is someone who feathers his own nest and advances his own career by undercutting the efforts of his fellow workers to gain better pay and working conditions for all. Webscabs claim they’re just posting their books for free in an attempt to market and publicize them, but to my mind they’re undercutting those of us who aren’t giving it away for free and are trying to get publishers to pay a better wage for our hard work.“, further clarifying his position that those who took part in such scurrilous activity were contributing toward “the downward spiral that is converting the noble calling of Writer into the life of Pixel-stained Technopeasant Wretch“.

(Which was nice. And the writing community responded by declaring yesterday to be ‘International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day’. I missed it because I was arguing with Gerald Kaufman, but in the spirit of tweaking the nose of Dr Hendrix (go on Hol, have fun with names and song titles)), I offer the first three spreads from the incomplete ‘Of Clockwork Men’ designed book version.




And in the Guardian, Naomi Wolf points out that Bush’s America is moving inexorably toward a fascist state. Go and read it.
