Why only some of my books are available under CC License on this web site? The promotion for humanities faculty at US universities requires publication of books with academic presses. In the last few years, some authours were able to negotiate making their books available under CC license. My latest book Software Takes Command will be available in 2013 under Creative Commons License (you also will be able to purchase softcover and e-book editions). However, this option was not available earlier when I was publishing "Textura: Russian Essays on Visual Culture" (Chicago University Press, 1993) and "The Language of New Media" (The MIT Press, 2001).
