Monday 23rd April is International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day

You've probably seen this already. If not, read it and boggle.

In honour of Dr Hendrix, I am declaring Monday 23rd April 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.

Whatever you're posting should go on your own site. I'll make a post here on the day and people can post links in comments to whatever they're putting up on. If you are a member of SFWA, or SFWA qualified but not a member (like me) you get extra pixel-spattered points for doing this. If other people want to collect the links too, that would be really cool. Please disseminate this information widely.

I'm thinking of putting up my odd Rebirth of Pan novel. I'm also thinking of putting up The Prize in the Game which is OOP. The only reason not to is the effort of HTMLing -- would people read ascii text? I'm also hoping to make an effort to prod rysmiel and zorinth to get the rest of my poetry onto my web page this week.

Ideas, useful refinements, volunteers, cheers, hisses?
