although basically hopeful of the company's 'rough cuts' venture, i am
insulted by the fact that o'reilly's safari service offers important
material
to its regular subscribers only if they pay extra for it. o'reilly's
material
on ajax is a good example: all of the introductory coverage is available
only
as pricey 'rough cuts'. as for the 'opportunity' which o'reilly offers
to its
customers to make  contributions/corrections to its 'rough cuts', there
comes
to mind microsoft, the old ibm, and other studies in arrogance, who in
effect
charge people for the 'opportunity' to do their alpha/beta work.

thanks,
