>> Post it on CCTalk

No way. All that would do is cause a long rambling discussion about wikis
and PDAs and all the usual stupid off-topicness.

Bill Deg. gave me a better idea: start my own site exclusively on this

I know he is right - that is a good idea - but I'm not a huge fan of the
wiki concept in general. Control of the content is very important to me. I
don't want strangers changing my work.

Instead  if I decide to turn the book into a web site (beyond the current
promo site: www.abacustosmartphone.com), then what I would do is make it
neatly organized. I wouldn't do it as a wiki.

I could still offer the printed version for those who want it. I wouldn't
lose much sales, because they slowed to a crawl after the first few months
when I debuted it (summer 2015).

First I'm going to finish my Lego robotics site.
