Free: The Future of a Radical Price is the second book written by Chris Anderson, Editor in chief of Wired magazine. The book was published on July 7, 2009 by Hyperion. He is also the author of The Long Tail, published in 2006.
Free follows a thread from the previous work. It examines the rise of pricing models which give products and services to customers for free, often as a strategy for attracting users and up-selling some of them to a premium level. That class of model has become widely referred to as "freemium" and has become very popular for a variety of digital products and services.
Free was released in the United States on July 7, 2009, though the night before, on his blog, Chris Anderson posted a browser readable version of the book and the unabridged audiobook version. Anderson generated controversy for plagiarizing content from the online encyclopedia Wikipedia in Free. Anderson responded to the claim on his The Long Tail blog, stating that there were disagreements between him and the publisher over accurate citation of Wikipedia due to the changing nature of its content, leading him to integrate footnotes into the text. Also on his blog, he took full responsibility for the mistakes and noted that the digital editions of Free were corrected. The notes and sources were later provided as a download on his blog.
Free, is the fifth album from the Filipinorock band, Rivermaya. It has 10 tracks and was released independently on the internet, literally given away for free which is another first for any Filipino artist. “Free” was also named Album of the Year in the NU Rock Awards 2000 & is the last album with Nathan Azarcon.
The song "Imbecillesque" was re-released on their 2005 EP entitled "You'll Be Safe Here". The song "Straight No Chaser" was later covered by actor and reggae artist Boy2 Quizon.
On the back cover of the album, tracks #7 and #8 were typed incorrectly as in the order of the songs in the album.
Free... is an EP by stoner metal band Acid King. It was released in February 2001 on Man's Ruin Records, as a split CD with Clearlight. The first four songs are performed by Acid King, and the remaining two by Clearlight. The Clearlight portion is entitled The Father, the Son and the Holy Smoke.
Free... features Guy Pinhas performing bass, and is the first Acid King album on which he appears. Pinhas left the band after performing bass on their next album, III.
The cover artwork is a photograph of Acid King's frontwoman Lori S. holding her motorcycle helmet.
Discovery is the debut studio album by American R&B/pop singer Shanice Wilson, released October 21, 1987 by A&M Records. Shanice at the time was fourteen years old with a very mature singing voice. Singer Teena Marie originally produced the majority of the album, but A&M Records felt the songs were too mature for her age. Bryan Loren was then chosen by A&M Records to produce new tracks that were used for the album. The singles "(Baby Tell Me) Can You Dance," and "No 1/2 Steppin'" were top 10 R&B hits. "The Way You Love Me," and "I'll Bet She's Got A Boyfriend" were the final singles from the album.
She took part in six expeditions in search of the Northwest Passage. During the 1610-1611 expedition in the Canadian arctic, the crew of Discoverymutinied, and set their captain Henry Hudson adrift in a small boat; he was not seen again, and the crew returned to England.
The series producer was Charlie Scott, and Brian Cleeve was the presenter and scriptwriter. Each half-hour edition focused on a specific subject, such as a commercial or state enterprise, an aspect of Irish culture, or some notable feature of the country's landscape.
In December 1964, Brian Cleeve received a Jacobs' Award for his contribution to the programme. However, in January 1966, it was announced that Cleeve was being dropped as the series' narrator because his voice was no longer felt to be suitable. Later that year, he left the programme completely to join the new 7 Days team.
Following Cleeve's departure, Discovery continued for another season using a number of alternative presenters, such as Paddy Gallagher, John Skehan, Michael Viney, and Terry Wogan.
In 2002, RTÉ screened digitally remastered versions of several of the original programmes. The topics covered included skydiving, mountaineering in the Wicklow mountains, and lighthouses off the Cork coast.
