| Authors are always very happy when their 
| paper is accepted for publication in a 
| journal, as this shows that their work was

| to update material is readily available. 
| Authors may even end up liking it.

| models we've been talking about -- and once again, this one is outside of the
| music industry. Recently we wrote about movie makers picking up on tiered

Writing a book with the help of the Sakai free software community

,----[ Quote ]
| This article is about writing a book with the help of the free software
| community. The book in question is Sakai Courseware Management with the main
| authors being Alan Berg (Me myself and I) and Michael Korcuska, the executive
| director of the Sakai Foundation. In reality, around forty community members
| delivered valuable content, which the authors distributed strategically
| throughout the book.
