I just found out O'Reilly no longer sell books directly, and point people at Amazon instead (they still provide Safari if you want to subscribe).
Sure, their Amazon books don't have #DRM, but I'm kind of sad to see the Mobi/AZW platform gaining even more traction. We're further away from the day when you can read whatever eBook you want on whatever device you want -- and sell/donate/lend them as you wish

This seems like a good time for a PSA:
If in the future you see something on a public-facing webpage you want to make a durable record of for use as evidence, don't take a screenshot. Those are -- understandably -- widely considered too easy to fabricate.
Instead, snapshot the page with the Internet Archive. It'll log a timestamped copy of the page to their servers. Highly tamper-resistant.

Free should be about freedom. We should coin a different word for things you don't pay for in money: my vote is zerocheap. Then we can say, "is it ACTUALLY free, or just zerocheap?" As in, so cheap it's zero dollars.
After years of the software freedom and open source communities trying to explain "free as in beer" versus "free as in freedom" and even using a Latin-rooted loan word like "libre" that's so obscure, it's like preaching to the choir; maybe it should be turned around.
