I recently discovered that my dissertation had become accessible (though not any more interesting) online through ProQuest, and now it's on GoogleBooks (here). Even worse, you can buy a copy on Amazon at a bargain price (see right). What really blows my mind is that there is a used copy out there, too.
It was released on September 20, 2011 (says Amazon). I guess ProQuest forgot to invite me to the release party.
I'm posting this as a curiosity, not as an endorsement.
(It turns out that my Master's thesis is listed on GoogleBooks, too, but fortunately, there is no preview...)
