The book: Available for sale

Submitted by gwolf on Fri, 10/28/2011 - 10:41

This is an update to my last post regarding the «Construcción Colaborativa del Conocimiento» book.

The book is, as we have repeatedly stated, available online for download — Both as a full PDF or chapter by chapter. In the website you will also find videos of all of the conferences held.

But holding a printed book in your hands is just a different experience, isn't it? :-) Anyway, I said I would give here an update on how to get your hands on it. The main venue would be through my University's e-store. I recommend it to anybody interested in buying the book in Mexico. The book's list price is MX$300 (around US$27), but it is currently sold at half price — I don't know how long will that price be offered.

On the other hand, we also uploaded it to the lulu.com self-publishing service. Of course, given I have not seen the printed results, I cannot assure you the resulting product will be of the same quality as the one we got here, but I have a couple of books I have bought at lulu, and their quality is quite acceptable. So, you can also buy it from lulu.com. Note the 20% discount it shows will be permanent — That's what I would get as an author, a payment I decided to forefit given we are 11 authors and it would be unfair to collect it all myself. So, the price at lulu.com is US$12.64 plus shipping — Very similar to the price at UNAM.

Enjoy!

ePUB

Según tu último artículo, vais a publicarlo en ePUB. Excelente idea, yo tengo un lector electrónico y varias veces he tenido que explicar por qué es importante publicar en ePUB y por qué el PDF no está adaptado.

¡Claro! Sólo habrá que esperar un poco

Un cuate me ofreció ayuda para montar un ePub con el material - Obviamente hay que hacerlo bien (¿o no hacerlo?).

Claro, les avisaré cuando me lo envíe.

Oh, but the movie is also online!

Well, the videoconference presenting the project (and the videoconferences for the other chapters as well) :)

Ah good, so I can totally say

Ah good, so I can totally say the book is much better than the movie and feel superior.

Congrats mi buen Gunnar, haber cuando te das una vuelta de nuevo a Tijuana.
