Stephan Urbach, known as "tomate", was active in the Telecomix activism
group in the past decade. He wrote a book about his life as an activist,
which was published last year in German. He tried to find a publisher
for an English version, but so far potential publishers didn't want to
pay the cost of translation. Stephan is now trying to raise the
necessary 3600€ from potential readers.
"'.REBOOT' is an uncontrolledly honest book telling about a life dealing
with nothing and everything but actual dealing with one thing: to
understand this world, change it and not collapsing doing so."
"His (Urbach's) book is not another netphilosophical sorry effort which
you read and take some nice ideas from and put in the shelf. His book is
unperfected, emotional, lacks from emotional detachment. It deeply
moves. Thanks." (Publikumsbeschimpfung)
"'.REBOOT" is an extraordinary intensive book, deeply moving and
frightening at the same time showing that its worthwhile to commit to
others and that there is no shame to admit your flaws." (Hanauer Bote)
Good luck Stephan!
