  • I *do* work for the O'Reilly Network, and everything Gnat says is true. The old site was a big drain that we supported for the sake of the community, and the redesign will make a huge difference in how easy it is for us to manage the site, and keep it up to date.

    Also, a lot of the "exploitation cries" sound like the kind of whinging people ordinarily reserve for enormous impersonal multinational megaconglomerates like AT&T or Time Warner or Disney or (ahem) Microsoft. This baffles me, because we're not an impersonal megaconglomerate, we're a company that's always prided itself on being a team player in the Open Source community. Each one of you can e-mail anyone at the O'Reilly Network with a question or concern about one of our sites, and get a response back from a real human being who cares about our readership and takes pride in what they do.

    So, don't hesitate to contact me or Simon Cozens or our editorial director, Dave Sims. We're not a bunch of marketing drones -- a lot of you know Simon, and some of you probably know me, and know that *I'm* just another perl hacker like you. We at the Network really do want to maximize the benefit to the community from the resources we have to devote, and we hope you'll be patient and willing to work with us to make [] a useful and informative resource.

    <Schuyler> So you want to see the problem get fixed, or do you just want to sit there and complain about it?
    <yrlnry> Preferably, both.
