  • I think you took my observation [perl.org] the wrong way. Especially this part:
    I'm not complaining. There's a lot to say about each of these topics.
    And this part:
    Then again, O'Reilly is living in an industry where competitors are using all sorts of dirty tricks to get books with wide spines to the market: thick paper, wide margins, large type, and long stretches of text (or code) that say nothing. At least O'Reilly is delivering the same kind of material the old multi-volume libraries used to deliver, while their competitors play games.
    I'm not trying to dis O'Reilly for killing trees. I'm noticing something is different than it was five-ten years ago, and trying to figure out what's changed.
