International Pixel-Stained
Technopeasant Day

Free reads from David Langford

Reponding to the instant fame of this SFWA VP rant about the SF-writing "webscabs" and "pixel-stained technopeasant wretch[es]" who offer samples of their work on line rather than diligently making cuneiform impressions in wet clay as God intended ... Jo Walton, bless her, declared 23 April 2007 to be International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day: "On this day, everyone who wants to should give away professional quality work online. It doesn't matter if it's a novel, a story or a poem, it doesn't matter if it's already been published or if it hasn't, the point is it should be disseminated online to celebrate our technopeasanthood."
