I am in the process of adapting my best-selling "HyperTalk Programming"  
title to Runtime Revolution 2.0. My plan is to offer an eBook  
optionally combined with a members-only Web site where  
subscriber/members will get regular updates and new chapters as well as  
access to discussion boards, their own blogs to discuss RR issues and  
designs, etc.

I would like to recruit a few people who would agree to be beta  
readers/testers as this project unfolds over the next 90 days. What I'd  
ask is:

1. Read each chapter as soon after I send it to you as possible. I want  
to keep total turnaround time per chapter under a week if I can.
2. Give me honest feedback on each chapter.
3. Tell me particularly where I'm stuck in HyperCard and not doing  
things in a Revolutionary way.

Likely I'll set this up as a discussion-style board where all of those  
involved in the beta can exchange ideas with each other, thus  
multiplying the effect and value of the feedback.

In return, I'll acknowledge your role and give you a free lifetime  
subscription to the book/site.

Please email me off-list if you're interested and available to do this.  
My guess is it will involve 2-6 hours per week over the course of the  
next 75 days or so.
