piranha: red origami crane (Default)
need to find out more; this is just a marker:

magellan media partners are doing an ongoing study of o'reilly titles and the effects of piracy on sales, and the correlations look very interesting so far.

for example, from moment of first seeding, pirated books shot up in sales to higher than initial release.

the study is for sale for a mere U$99 -- at those prices i think i might look for a pirated copy, *snrk*. but i can download a PPT presentation if i sign up with my email address. ok.

gradations of rust, from grey paint through he usual reddish browns to blackish
i could easily post a different rust picture every day, and not get tired of it. don't worry, i know the rest of you don't feel that way. :)
