Here is the post about the book at Creative Commons:


"Chuck Severance, clinical professor at the University of Michigan’s School of Information, recently published a new textbook in 11 days because he was able to remix an existing textbook."

Here is my Blog post:


"It is quite natural for academics who are continuously told to ”publish or perish” to want to always create something from scratch that is their own contribution. This book is an for me experiment in ”re-mixing” an book titled Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist written by Allen B. Downey, Jeff Elkner and others."

Thanks to Jeff and Alan for making it possible and for letting me switch the copyright to CC-BY-Share Alike.
