The Erlang Journal

I have written to O'reilly trying to interest them in a new Erlang book
- they were not interested
they said the market was not big enough ... ye gods - so how does it get
from being small
to bug without the help of a publisher ?????????????????????
So instead how about a big collaborative effort.....
To start the ball rolling
I have put a brain dump on http://www.geocities/erlang_journal/book1.html.
Please take a look - questions we might discuss are
- is the chapter plan ok
- more chapters ?? if so what
- too many chapters?? what to delete
- format - media (How about a wiki book) - with a set of moderated pages
My current favorite proposal is to use the wiki with locked pages
Look at the bottom of
to see what I mean
- how do we organise the contribitutions (free for all
I started the "Erlang Journal" and have written a few contributions.
The journal is on http://www.geocities.com/erlang_journal/ intil it
finds a better home
It's in plain HTML and does not yet have any nice look-and-feel.
I will correct the LAF as soon as possible.
Right now I'd like contributions
