Readings for your iPod

Alternative MP3s for your iPod include:

digital audio spoken word content – digests of magazines, such as MIT’s Technology Review, and newspapers, such as the New York Times, authors reading short stories, short interviews and radio shows….

Initially, the selection can seem very late 90s libertarian net geek (with science fiction, Ayn Rand novels and tech business titles, such as Alan Deutschman’s The Second Coming of Steve Jobs highlighted on the front page). Drill down and you find literary classics (James, Twain and more), anti-corporate bestsellers (Fast Food Nation or Dude, Where’s My Country), tech business classics (The Cluetrain Manifesto), big idea titles (Greg Easterbrook’s The Progress Paradox), modern fiction (Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections) and pop science (Linked, Albert-Laszlo Barabasi’s introduction to network science).
