fighting the lack of good ideas

manning is doing something similar to my bucket proposal

Manning Publishers has a liveBook offering.

And it allows for the type of mini transactions (through their self-hosted “token” system) that I proposed when writing about how I’d dumped Pi-hole last year.

Quoting from their recent announcement email

Book publishers follow a simple rule: put your content behind a solid paywall. At Manning, we believe you should be able to see before you buy. liveBook search and Manning Tokens make the paywall porous. Our new new timed unlock feature moves the whole wall further back!

That’s pretty dang cool, Manning.

updates to connexions modules

Starting this week, and continuing over the next several weeks, there will be several updates and expansions coming to my published Connexions Collection (original publishing comments), “Debugging and Supporting Software Systems“.

I would love to collect feedback and be able to incorporate any suggestions for improvement that you may have.

Please feel free to either email me via the “E-mail the collection author” link on the CNX site, or via comments hereon.
