It’s entirely my fault that the book has taken so long to deliver. When I started it, I genuinely had no idea how much work it would be to co-ordinate not only the contributions but all of the paperwork that goes with them. Most of the contributions were delivered over a year ago, but it took far longer than I had expected to organise and edit them. Add to this the inevitable problems with diagram formats, bizzare Word formatting, legal departments sitting on contributor’s agreements, incomprehensible jargon and misunderstood TLAs, and suddenly it’s 2007. I can’t apologise enough to the contributors: sorry guys, but thanks again for contributing.
Still, next time I’ll know what to do!
My opinions are my own (I think) and are presented solely in my capacity as an interested member of the general public.
