This has been a slow week for pledges, naturally, but they’re still coming, and the project is up to $602 of the needed $2000. A mention here, a mention there, and you never know how it might spread.

I’ve taken a little break from writing Files that Last, figuring a trial run on Smashwords may be useful, letting me make my mistakes on a less important publication. I’ll shortly be publishing an e-booklet for a specialized technical audience, JHOVE Tips for Developers. It will be distributed on a “name your own price” basis. I’ve posted a call for proofreaders on File Formats Blog. I can’t pay for help on this, but if you can give any feedback on the draft, I’ll greatly appreciate it, and it will help to make FTL a better book.
