The book

It's about time I write something about the book Google sent us.

The book is Producing Open Source Software by Karl Fogel. But, it's a little special -- Karl signed each and every one of the over 900 books Google sent out. Spectacular effort. Thank you Karl and Google.

Google has picked the perfect gift as the book is perfectly on topic. Even though the book is targeted at open source development, I think it can be a good read for anyone who's thinking of participating in any kind of distributed development, as it focuses much on communication and collaboration.

And of course, the whole book is published under a Creative Commons licese, so it's downloadable, redistributable and modifiable.
