Finally it's done. I got my PhD thesis published. It's a 430-page book in German with an art history / cultural studies approach to the demoscene phenomenon.

This is the page the publishing house [transcript] set up for me:
http://www.transcript-verlag.de/ts1749/ts1749.php

This is my own website for the book, also in German, but I intend to provide some international content here soon:

Thank you all for the nice feedback!

I added an english version of the book's ToC to the website with some
lines about what's been written inside the chapters:

Just to give you all an outline of the book's content and the main
topics I was dealing with.
