The Internet has made a giant leap in recent years. I had a networking teacher a few ago years who used to say “The internet is a great big bag – of shit” At the time we agreed that the internet’s best quality’s were also it’s strong points, internet gambling and pornography. Now, not only is the internet a fantastic contributor to media and software theft, you can also steal books as well. Trawling the various torrent search sights, I came across active torrents containing over thousand books, thievery inst exclusively for the fool anymore.

The internet also excels as a distribution for free things (or illegal distributed things?).

http://www.george-orwell.org/ Hosts complete copy’s of 1984, Animal Farm, A Clergyman’s Daughter, Burmese Days, Coming Up for Air, Down and Out in Paris and London, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, Homage to Catalonia, The Road to Wigan Pier as well a number of George Orwell essays I was not perviousy aware of.  The website appears to be a part of a family of websites containing the works of Charles Darwin, Mark Twain, William Shakespeare, and Charles Dickens.
