Parallel Programming: Announcement

As some of you know, I have been working on a book on parallel programming. My thought had been to complete it, then announce it. But I finally realized that it really never will be complete, at least not as long as people keep coming up with new parallel-programming ideas, which I most definitely hope will continue for a very long time.

So, here it is!

Wow... This is great. I guess this means you don't have any concrete plans for physical publication, right?

Because nobody has ever published a successful technical book and also made it available on the Internet? :)

Physical publication
I've had pretty good luck putting PDF's up on lulu.com; there is $0 fixed cost to the author (though you need to make a PDF with embedded fonts for the document, and an image file for your cover) and the paperback books have been fairly sturdy (i.e., in reasonably good condition after a year or more of being left out as a "reference copy" in our CS teaching lab).

Based on a quick look at this book, I'd probably pick up a paper copy if a high-quality one was easily available: I still haven't adopted an e-reader, and I hate trying to collect 100+ page documents off the printer. (Note that I have no financial interest in lulu.com or its competitors.)
