I have released a first version of my first Chalk Dust book, "How to Make a
Chalk Dust Morphic Book." This book makes a reference to my next book, which
describes using the Squeak mouse. That should be done soon. The intended
audience for this book is a teacher or college student who is at least a
beginner at using Squeak -- this book does not teach someone how to use
Squeak, but it does focus on fundamentals relavent to using a book morph.
The intended audience for Chalk Dust books are students at the middle and
high school level, say 14 - 18 years old. An older demographic than OLPC.

One of the goals for this effort is to use Squeak "out of the box." I
realize that to you folks, a little code here and there is easy. Picture an
alternative to PowerPoint and you will be close to what I have in mind. As
an author gains experience with Squeak they should be able to create
increasingly fancy books.

If anyone has some time (ha ha) I would appreciate any and all comments,
starting with spelling and grammer and going up from there as far as you
like. After I have had time to incorporate your suggestions I will make a
formal announcement on the Open Slate web site and mailing list.

In closing let me say thanks to all of you who have responded to my
queations here.
