Tim O’Reilly has posted his new state of the computer book industry.
Unfortunately, Tim writes “While Q1 was consistently higher than any period since the bust in 2001, and looked like we might be about to break out of the narrow range of the past couple of years, Q2 bumped along at about the same level as last year.”
As always, Tim will follow this post with more analysis in the next day or two.
I still expect a big bump with Office, Vista, CS3 and Leopard, eventually. There was little new software activity in the second quarter, which gives me some cause for hope.
