I plan to either succeed or fail spectacularly. Either way there will
be a great lesson to learn.

I still haven't figured out how to incorporate community feedback. I
did create a Google group where the book and ideas can be discussed,
though. See http://groups.google.com/group/hardcore_erlang.
I assume that not everyone interested in the book or the stock
exchange software will be a subscriber to this list.
I doubt I will have time to run a full-scale open source project in
addition to writing the book and managing my regular consulting
assignments. I'll sure I will run into software problems along the
way, though. I will put those problems into context and ask for help
Once the book is written, I should have plenty of time to further
develop the concept and associated software.
