Thanks, Mark! Friends — please help Singularity & Co. raise money to start this adventure book club. I'm going to be the club's editor...
 
The goal of Save the Adventure is to rescue out-of-print adventure stories from copyright limbo.

My friend Matthew Battles, who started HiLobrow with me in 2009, then left last year to be a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center and join the metaLAB think tank there, is going to blog twice a week about technology for HiLobrow, as of this week. Here's his first post. Comes with a cool video!

Super sad news about internet activist Aaron Swartz; I knew him slightly, and he was as sweet and thoughtful a guy as I've ever met.  So I wanted to post here a terrific defense of Swartz posted to HiLobrow by Matthew Battles after Aaron was indicted for breaking into MIT’s networks in order to download nearly five million articles from JSTOR. What are intellectuals good for? Matthew asked — then concluded that Aaron's activism was the answer.
