Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

Thank you to the authors and commenters who participated in the program. OFPS was an O'Reilly experiment that demonstrated the benefits of bridging the gap between private manuscripts and public blogs. Readers gained access to in-progress O'Reilly manuscripts and were able to communicate suggestions with the authors, follow others' comments, and directly participate in the development of new books. Additionally, authors published their in-progress work whenever they thought it ready for public comment and were able to update the site with new versions as the content was improved.

Can there be a critical theory of games? I thought it would be interesting to share the book in its draft state to see if these questions are something other people might have ideas on or might want to pursue. more ... Without Gods. Retreat to My Study After a year of mostly daily blogging on this site, I am cutting back.

Without Gods

As most of you know, I am writing a book on the history of disbelief for Carroll and Graf. The blog -- produced while working on the book -- was an experiment conceived by the Institute for the Future of the Book. It has been a success. I have been benefiting from informed and insightful comments by readers of the blog as I've tested some ideas from this book and explored some of their connections to contemporary debates.

One other point about categories before moving on.

What I would like to do here is spend some time developing the idea of the Platform Book. There is another reason as well to be thinking about the Platform Book, and this has to do with my kinship to book publishers, who are now struggling to find growth. Codev2:Lawrence Lessig.
