Lazy Reading for 2013/07/07

A U.S. holiday and very warm weather has made this a less intense week.  At least for links.

Your unrelated link of the week: A new Cyriak-animated video, this time for the band Bloc Party.

Sales stats and books

While these aren’t his BSD books, Michael W. Lucas has an interesting post up about the sales on his two recent books, SSH Mastery and DNSSEC Mastery.  I’m always interested in seeing how self-publishing models work, whether it’s software or books or music.  He points out that the point of his DNSSEC book is to see if a very difficult subject can be covered in a book like that – which it is.  There’s very few published books that go that in-depth.

(I’m hoping for a whole “Mastery” series covering topics other writers don’t, especially in a BSD-friendly way.)
