Putting the Wholes Together

If incoming mail contains the word"identity" it goes to a mailbox I started in late 2004. It has over 7000 emails in it now. The majority of those are from theIdentity Gang list.The Identity Gang got its name when it first met informally on theDecember 31, 2004 editionofGillmor Gang.

You can see the progress in just one month.This observation comes in the midst of thinking about a form of Vendor Relationship Management that has the same initials asCRM, but a different meaning: Creator Relationship Management.I would like to relate to creators in a better, less intermediated way.

MySQL Cookbook 2nd Edition

I had reviewed O'Reilly's Learning MySQL by Tahaghoghi and Williams for Linux Magazine (published in Europe and known in the U.S. and Canada as Linux Pro Magazine) and was pondering the difference between 'Learning' MySQL and having a 'Cookbook' on the same subject by the same publisher. I suppose it's the difference between learning the basic principles of cooking vs. vastly deepening your repertoire of cooking styles and recipes. To quote from the Linux Magazine review of Learning MySQL, 'The book is primarily written for readers who "don't know much about deploying and using an actual database-management system...".' To quote from the Introduction of MySQL Cookbook, 'This book should be useful for anybody who uses MySQL...The book should appeal to people who do not now use MySQL but would like to'.
