I second what Alejandro says. Revolution is too multifaceted. Have 
you looked at the efforts of Adam Engst with his "Take Control" 
eBooks? I think this model would work quite well for Revolution. You 
would write whatever you feel comfortable with / worth your personal 
time, whereas others would contribute eBooks in their area of 
expertise. We do have some people who are true experts in specific 
areas, be it QuickTime, database usage, interface programming, 
multimedia, etc etc.
