Open Sources 1.0 Gets a New Cover

As part of the ongoing sprucing up of the open source book line, they gave my first book (with Mark Stone and Sam Ockman) a new cover. Check it out. Also, the contents of this book are up on the internet if you'd rather read it that way. When we published it, there was no creative commons so some of it is released under the non-optimal (for text) GPL. I don't even think the GFDL was around then.

So, to join the chorus sung by Cory Doctorow, I think that the Book sold well likely because of the free nature of it. I hope Open Sources 2.0 (under a creative commons license) does as well....hell I hope it does much better :-)

Dear Chris,

I would love to work for Google.

I will be graduating from Tufts University May 2006. I am very interested in applying for a position at Google. There are lots of information about Google on the site. The recruiting video was great help, but I don't have a friend that can tell me about the "real" life behind the walls. Will you be willing to share some of your experiences with me?

I will be very grateful if you are willing to.

My e-mail is geoffrey.lam@tufts.edu

Regards,
Geoffrey Lam
