Feb 28, 2002: The End is Near

WARNING: narcissism ahead

0.79 chapters to go! Much as I absolutely despise devoting all my waking hours and most of my normally sleeping hours to writing, I'm almost feeling good right now. Maybe the prospect of having a life again has something to do with it.

If all goes as planned, the second edition goes into tech review at around the same time as the IA Summit. And after the tech review shredding, manuscript and self-esteem reassembling, and production, the second edition of the polar bear book should hit the stands in July.

Like many authors, we were a bit too ambitious, even though we've been through this before and should have known better. But the second edition will really be a new book: much, much more material, and what we retained from the first edition is significantly revised and updated. As far as quality, we hope you'll be the judge of that.

In the meantime, if you're at the Summit and see two haggard but happy looking guys, those are me and Peter. Buy us a beer or something.

A beer is in your futures.
A six pack if I get mentioned somehow in the book!!! (Even if it's something like "Andrew is an example of someone who should never try to do information architecture...")
