Technopeasants Unite!"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." —Author Jo Walton

This site collects links to novels, stories, poems, music, art, and other offerings placed online by folks celebrating IPSTP Day on April 23, 2007. You can follow the controversy that prompted Jo Walton's proposal of the day through this tag (in reverse order of the date posted) at the LiveJournal blog for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. More contributions were posted at these links: Jo Walton's blog: April 15, 2007, Jo Walton's blog: April 23, 2007, ipstp blog: April 2007, and Technorati: blog entries tagged "technopeasant". Or just do a Web search on "technopeasant".

A moderator at the sfwa blog, Will Shetterly, expressed the wistful hope that somebody would collect the links in one place. I volunteered. He responded: "Hurrah! (Because madness should be encouraged.)"

Links are collected and annotated by Dusk Peterson. Fiction by Dusk Peterson is available.
