Hey Jason --

Just took a look, already prejudiced to like it by the title and cover.
'Snake Wrangling...' I like that.

We're using 'web wrangler' instead of 'web master' around here
some too.

I'm looking forward to where gems such as yours get used to seed
a version control tree.  Talented, perhaps tiny groups, share commit
privileges, one doing graphic art, another doing a particular themed
section -- whatever division of labor.

We do it with code, we should do it with cyber-books.

Anyway, lots to like about your generous nudge in the right direction.
