Don't buy the IEEE edition of my book.

In January 2013 the IEEE Xplore digital library began hosting digital copies of 400+ books published by MIT Press <http://goo.gl/EVmio>. The IEEE copies are not OA. They're digital copies sold by the chapter. I'm sure that's convenient for some users, and it may also be economical for some chapters of some books. So I'm not criticizing the program as a whole.

My latest book (Open Access, MIT Press, 2012) <http://bit.ly/oa-book> is one of those available in an IEEE edition <http://goo.gl/eUhmjK>. The problem is that IEEE charges $15 per chapter (PDF-only). By contrast, at Amazon today you can buy the whole paperback edition for $11.72 <http://goo.gl/lGIDw> or the whole Kindle edition for $9.99 <http://goo.gl/cg1u3>. Moreover, the whole book is open access in eight different file formats <http://bit.ly/oa-book>.

There are other problems here too. My chapters use endnotes, which are all collected in the back of the book and sold by IEEE as a separate chapter. Hence, you could pay $15 for a given chapter and not get any of its notes unless you paid another $15 for them. Moreover, the IEEE flat fee of $15 per chapter applies even to very short sections of the book, like my two-page glossary. The PDF from IEEE is packaged in 15 separate files and will cost you $225.

If you want to buy the whole book, to support the cause, buy the paperback or Kindle edition from MIT Press. If you want to read the book in PDF format, read the open-access PDF from MIT Press <http://goo.gl/i2fZ4V>. It's not only free, it's packaged in one file for continuous reading. 

I can't think of a single reason to buy a single chapter of my book from IEEE.

In fairness, IEEE made its edition available five months before my book became OA. At that time, you couldn't save $225 by choosing an OA edition. You could only save $213 by buying the MIT paperback or save $215 by buying the MIT Kindle edition.

Finland plans to start teaching programming to everyone starting from first grade in 2016. First playing, then visual programming, then programming using real languages and mobile environments. Not everybody should be a programmer but everybody should understand how engineering works.

This book (in Finnish) is for teachers, explaining what to expect and where to get materials, courses and how to involve kids and their parents into productive development of programming and engineering skills.
