TechnologyNew O'Reilly Book on Weblogging!

We've been given the go ahead from O'Reilly, the "...FRIENDLIEST and most WONDERFUL publisher we've ever dealt with" (sorry, a little editor tease there), to announce a new book on weblogging!

Among the authors is yours truly, writing the chapters on Blogger. I'm joined by Mena and Ben Trott writing about Movable Type, Scott Johnson who's been dropping hints about the book, Rael Dornfest from O'Reilly, and Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing fame. Nathan Torkington is the editor that has to manage this wild and wooly crowd.

The book should be out in September. Start saving your pennies now.

The name of the book will either be Weblogging Essentials or Practical Weblogging. My preference of course is for the latter since I'm also writing Practical RDF.

Congratulations, Bb! I'll try to use the book as leverage to pry my seminary away from BlackBoard INC to a more manageable, praciable alternative.

I havae an appointment tomorrow to talk with the Dean about our technology expenses; one point I intend to make is that for what we pay for BlackBoard, we could put together our own, controllable, no-annual-fees, forward-looking MT2 and other server-side goodies operation. We'll see how that flies. . . .

Forget about blogrolling, let's get back to our roots and do some old-style logrolling!

Congrats, Shelley! Maybe you can stay in SF after all?

Awesome. Finally, weblogging from a webloggers point of view.

I of course expect an entire chapter on myself. But you knew that already.

And let us know when the sample chapters are out, hey?
