Recently the MyCreativity reader arrived from the printer. This book 
brings together texts that were produced for the MyCreativity 
conference in Amsterdam (November 2006), which dealt with critical 
research into the creative industries.
Thanks to all the contributors, Michael Dieter in Melbourne for the 
copy editing, Katja van Stiphout for the design and Sabine Niederer 
for the production.

As you might know, the INC readers are free to order. The first print 
run is 1500.

If you want to get a copy, please send your postal address to Marije 
van Eck: marijevaneck at networkcultures.org.

Soon the reader will also be available as a .pdf online.
