Jim Minatel of Wiley has a excellent post today about donating to the Red Cross via Amazon (at $10,000,000 so far), and how it might be improved. He also encourages his readers to ask for Katrina donations this Christmas in lieu of gifts. That’s a great idea.
I don’t think I mentioned Jim’s blog earlier, but I meant to. He has excellent, ongoing coverage of the Wrox imprint and goes deep into the nitty gritty details of publishing high-level technical titles. Anyone who wants to write for Wrox should subscribe to his feed.
