Writing a book
I was talking to a friend of mine about two books I've outlined and am planning to write by the end of 2007. She asked two things, "Why write another book?" and "How do the people you are trying to reach get their information nowadays?"
Two very good questions. I'd love to know your answers (feel free to comment on this post or email me - where do you get the information you use?)
Lots of folks are experimenting with the book as we know it. One particularly compelling example is "Designing Interactions" - available as a book, a DVD, downloadable chapters, online interview excerpts, and a blog. The whole package comes to use via Bill Moggridge, one of the founders of IDEO.
Others who are thinking about books include the folks at The Institute for the Future of the Book, the online journal First Monday and the Processed Book Project.
There are many more, of course, here's a good list of links and don't forget to check del.icio.us for tags and more.
