Ted Kaczynski, more widely known as the Unabomber, got some bad news from a federal appeals court today: his writings are to be sold online.

In prison for life, Kaczynski protested that he should keep control of his papers, but the ruling is an attempt to recoup part of the $15 million in restitution Kaczynski owes his victims and their families.

It will be interesting to see if the papers are sold via eBay, a government auction website, or some other channel, and equally as interesting will be who buys the papers and for how much.

You never know online. An NFC championship hot dog once sold for $1,800, but Sarah Palin’s poor unpardoned turkey only fetched a couple of hundred.

Just to get an idea of the Unabomber’s topics and writing style, and in case you missed it when published in 1995, you can read his manifesto online, which isn’t all that different from an Ann Coulter book.
