Why is Maxim
offering a free
, no-catches 2 years subscription to anyone who can be bothered to give them one of their spamsucker e-mail addresses? Hey, I hate Maxim but I'd take one if I lived in the U.S, if only to keep the postal service busy and ingratiate myself with my nephews. Will all magazines - at least the shittiest ones - be free in the future? Subscription rates, sales and advertising revenues keep falling and it seems the only bargaining chip magazines have left (to solicit advertisements) is circulation. And still new mags, like Radar
, keep popping up. Good thing? Bad thing? You tell me.

an established author is giving away his latest novel "The Tie and The Crest", for free on the internet, here
he explains why. It's all very noble and I applaud it.
While we are on the subject, has anyone mentioned the Big Read

Cyber gripers arise!
In response to the trend of big corporations successfully taking 'sucks' domains away from the owners (vivendiuniversalsucks.com is an example in the article), the Free Speech Center
will be offering 'sucks' domains for free for the taking (and presumably first amendment/article 19 exercising).

The American Institute of Graphic Arts offer a selection of useful symbols in eps and gif formats for free download
. Are there any other sites offering similar symbols?
