Well, publishing in the traditional sense requires many people and also
some dead trees.<s>

(Actually, going through the laser game tutorial has given me a number of
ideas as how traditional Squeak could be improved with some
manual-building tools. But that's a separate issue.)

I'm all for it. And as Conrad points out there's Lulu. I would probably be
uncomfortable releasing a book that didn't have a number of editors
besides myself. (Three is good: One general editor, one very good language
person, and one tech person.) If I self-publish I have to find (and pay!)
those people myself. A good editor is worth her weight in gold. (And I use
"her" here because the best editors I've had have been women.)
