I’m very excited to announce that The Edupunks’ Guide is now available for free download as a nicely designed PDF and in plain-text e-reader-compatible versions. There’s also a Kindle version at Amazon.com. TheEdupunksGuide.org will launch later this fall as a site with some features that will hopefully allow people to comment on, annotate and expand the guide. For now, this blog remains the place for Edupunks’ Guide updates.
I want to thank all the readers of this blog who helped cheer on this project. I hope that you’ll find it useful. Either way, let me know what you think!
