Hey I know this is a broken record, but are any new Erlang books getting 
off the ground?

It grieves me to think that <random pet OSS project>* can get a book 
out, but Erlang can't. Erlang needs it so much more, hell, it probably 
needs multiple books (Basics, OTP, Optimisation, Patterns, etc).

I came across Joe's outline the other day, at 
http://www.geocities.com/erlang_journal/book1.html - very nice, but it 
seems to have stalled some time ago. The online docs are v.nice (nice 
job on R10) but speaking from experience I know that I needed the book 
sometimes.

I know we're all busy people doing real work, but this is becoming a 
serious barrier to inducting new Erlang people. Is anyone progressing 
anything?

Cheers,
Bruce
