Free ebook: Fans, Friends, & Followers

South by Southwest (SXSW) is an annual series of festivals and conferences centered around music, film, and interactive technologies.  Expect to see a blizzard of tweets with a #SXSW hashtag for the next couple of weeks as attendees use Twitter for backchannel commentaries during the conferences.  This year, there is some virtual swag available for those of us who are not physically attending.  

From BoingBoing:

To coincide with South by Southwest, journalist Scott Kirsner is making his 2009 book Fans, Friends & Followers: Building an Audience and a Creative Career in the Digital Age available free, in digital form, for the duration of the festival. You can download it here.

[Note: the PDF was very slow to open for me.  Given the popularity of both SXSW and BoingBoing, it wouldn’t be surprising if the site was overloaded with traffic.]
