Cory Doctorow Booksigning in SecondLife

Cory Doctorow writes (in email):

In preparation for my in-game virtual booksigning in Second Life, the Seocnd Lifers held a competition to design a virtual copy of my novel. The winner has just been announced and the virtual text is now freely available in-game. It's a really sweet virtual artifact, too, designed by Second Lifer Falk Bergman.
I love the mixing of real and virtual that's happening in SecondLife. This is definitely "News from the Future."

Saw the comment, went inside, got my copy, and damn it's nice. Thanks for the tip!

Yes, an artifact, a "book" in just once copyable exemplar with no possibility yet for others to publish their works..we still don't have book-publishing technology in Second Life for lots of reasons, see my "Will Gutenberg Come to the Virtual World?"
