Hi,
Sorry, somehow I missed  this thread. It 's nice to read that your project was succesfull.
Any new initiatives? Translations in other languages? Or perhaps - with the development of NXT 2.0 - an new edition?

we're updating the book so it covers the latest Nxt 2.0 design too. I found that necessary. When the English book version is finalised, we'll translate.

We need people like you to promote NXT to the world.

Yup, we need everybody. :)

We're running an independent bounty-program via AE, if you're interested in helping, please make contact ;)

When is the estimated date for the book to be ready?

Would be nice to have it soon, as Nxt/Ardor are quite HOT in this moment...

Hi Capodieci,

You're right. It's the right moment for the book.
I'm very uncomfortable with the situation:
- Apenzl and oldnbold work hard on the book since 2015. But Apenzl wanted to change a lot of text: some where not good/long enough and the divorce with SuperNET and Sasha (Waves) made the text obsoletes.
We are very late with our projections. I'm so sorry about it.

But In the last news, Apenzl said to me that the book is ready soon. But right now, Apenzl is in holidays until 21st or 22nd July.
And after that, I also have holidays (with bad internet connection)...

I can't do anything without the final PDF of the book. And I have to read it before to print it (I don't publish anything without reading it).

So, if Apenzl can send me the book before my holidays (hopefully this week-end), I can prepare every thing for the printing of the book. I read it during my holidays. I can organize to receive the books in my office direct after my holidays and I send it as fast I can.
The best planing can only reach the second half of August for sending the books.

It depends a lot of the finalisation of the printing PDF from Nxter Magazine team.

***

But I can already organise the book swap!

I'll create a new account where it's possible to send the pbookeng assets and TENGB/XENGB/LENGB MScoins with a postal address.

I can already prepare the sending packs and don't losing time.
More information this week.

Thank you Rubenaco and Ludom for the updates.

Well, beside the delivery of the printed book to the supporters, it would be amazing if - and I am sure the supporter will not mind - the book was also distributed/promoted via mass media (A link in Amazon with the book at 50 cents?) with each article that talks about Nxt/Ardor. People is curious, and they usually want to know more.

I am not sure how the book is structured, but history is what it is, so maybe some of the past can be told even if it is no more relevant for the present?

Something I am working on since a few months (now needs updates after the DAO tragedy) on Smart Transactions, that needs heavy editing, yet can be of help for the book:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/11HHm5YPNUA0dmYHAiVXhgnGgYfE5vd3ksR0mXv_uvCE/edit?usp=sharing

Anything else I can do to help, let me know.

Sorry for the long silence.

Yes, and a good idea. Amazon (and Kindle) has always been on the map, so is Apples's Bookstore, B&N, etc.

50 cents? Well, maybe... My thought was: a free LE to promote Nxt + Ardor, and a Full Edition @ a higher price than 50 cent.  :)

Yes. But history IS relevant, IMHO, history rocks, and all those chapters are in place.

Thanks. I've implemented some, and will send you the article to proof check.
I will also send you your original article, which I have fiddled with a little - still, I've only added quotes from yourself to it. ;)

Same goes for everyone else who have contributed directly to the book; I have now edited and updated the largest part of it, structured it, and oldnbold is in the process of proofreading and adding his editorial comments and questions; I will send you your articles for approval within the next few days.

To make the book serve both our history and Ardor better (as reference, because Ardor is build on Nxt), I decided to add "easy-to-understand" descriptions of each Nxt feature to the book. Man, that does take a non-coder at least a few days per feature. Plus, I've added a couple of new chapters + over a hundred footnotes.

I have a date with Shee (who is the designer of the cover and the free Nxt 2nd anniversary e-book) on Aug 23, where we will finalise the book; it hurts to work for free, so I've had to set up all the content as well, even though InDesign is not exactly my field of expertise.

I can already organise the book swap!

I'll create a new account where it's possible to send the pbookeng assets and TENGB/XENGB/LENGB MScoins with a postal address.
Please do it now. :)

ALL well :)
Yes.
Thanks Ludom & RubénBC for answering for me.

I'm so sorry for letting you all wait, and for the radio silence, but I am confident that it will turn out to be worth it. The book is going to be great.

Best,
a

PS. And after that, nxter.org is up for a re-design.  ;D

Right now, you don't need the public key. The name of the account is "Send your postal address in your transaction"

Why not consider distributing via Blurb? At least that's the only one I know... As far as I understood it's like the cdbaby of books.

No not yet, Roberto. In about 2 weeks, I think. And it's going to be beautiful, from the inside out.  :)
