Bottom line with me is that I'm interested in an APUG book. I like what Michael Smith has to say/offer, and, I'm willing to pay up to $100 for a good quality book....even if I don't make the cut (Ha! As if...). There's a ton of talent in this group (understatement) and, although I do own a few wonderful prints from various APUG'rs, I would love to see more images on something other than my stinkin' computer monitor on an annual, every-other-year, 5-year(?) basis.
As far as how the project gets organized, I'll let the smart people handle that one.
