Boing Boing founder Cory Doctorow’s new YA novel, For the Win hit shelves in the US, UK, and Canada this week. A subversive cult classic in the making, FTW is about gold-farmers, workers who do repetitive work in video games such as World of Warcraft to earn valuable game items which are then sold on to the highest bidder.
