As you know, Susie’s been working on another book: “Bittorrent for Dummies.” Well, it’s finished. We’re thrilled, and can’t wait for it to appear in stores, most likely in October.
I think there’s going to be a whole lot of interest around this—it’s the very first book on bittorrent to be produced, and there’s some legal controversy over what effect the Grokster court decision might have on other software, like bittorrent. In fact, there’s a bit of a debate I’ve been having about what the decision means for books about file sharing—the decision could have unintended consequences that affect media other than software distribution. We’ll see.
To be totally accurate, the book it’s totally finished. It’s just her part of it that’s finished. Wiley (the publisher of Dummies, who don’t yet have the book on their site) still needs to print it. And produce it. And, well, her writing part is done, but there’s still the editing. And promotion.
Come to think of it, there’s a lot of editing.
OK, never mind. I’ll let you know when we’re TOTALLY done it.
Special thanks to co-author Kris Krug and intellectual property lawyer Michael Overing, by the way.
