without whom not
The people listed below have all given of their time generously, answering questions, pointing me to salient writings, sitting for interviews, reviewing chapters, or otherwise encouraging me to complete this book. I would like to thank every one (and I promise to add XFN information to the links at length):
Here's my official bio for the book:
CHRISTIAN CRUMLISH is a writer, consultant, and artist who has been involved in developing and writing about web technology for the last decade. He is a prolific blogger and is well connected in both the social-software arena and among technically savvy political organizers. His previous books include Coffeehouse: Writings from the Web, The Internet for Busy People, and The Internet Dictionary. He lives in Oakland, California.
As a writer, I'm glad we can all talk to each other now.
I play ukulele and guitar in two bands, Layers of Meta and The Power & Mighty.
I am still collecting dribs and drabs of my online presence, my digital identity, whatever you want to to call it (I call it my next book but more about that later).
Christian Crumlish 1017 Bay View Avenue Oakland, CA 94610-4032 email@example.com
