Chris got boinged

My friend Chris Howard's new novel was the subject of a BoingBoing post yesterday. I'm amazed at the kind of traffic this has generated. From a steady but modest stream of 30 to 40 daily visitors, yesterday he recieved something on the order of 4000 (yes, four thousand) visitors, and now over 3000 (yes, three thousand) people have downloaded the book (he's released it under the Creative Commons license). I'm pleased to say I was one of the first to download it... now if I were a good friend, I'd actually already have started reading it...

A well-deserved recognition of a lot of hard work, and a terrific step along the path. Congratulations Chris.
