pirate version of my book...

The problem is, people are being caught in the middle of a massive technology
change and consequent change in markets caused by no-cost untraceable easy
anonymous replication, and its not going back to the way it was.  Don't know
the answer, but like it or not, there is obviously no going back to the old
model of more or less guaranteed payment for every copy owned.

Meanwhile, what's really interesting about the scale of piracy of Colin's
book is that people see such a demand for it. Its a real compliment in a
way, and the more the links proliferate, the more of a compliment it is.

Will it translate into paid sales of LiveCode?   Or simply an extension of
piracy efforts to the language itself?  Be interesting to see.  But there is
clearly a very substantial demand for simplet mobile programming IDE and
manuals than the mainstream ones, and Colin certainly seems to have hit a
sweet spot.  There must be some way to exploit it with a Rev + Manual
package directed at the people who are downloading the book, and are now in
want of an IDE to go with it!
