Introduction to Realtimepublishers
by Sean Daily, Series Editor
The book you are about to enjoy represents an entirely new modality of publishing and a majorfirst in the industry. The founding concept behindRealtimepublishers.comis the idea of providing readers with high-quality books about today’s most critical technology topicsat nocost to the reader. Although this feat may sound difficult to achieve, it is made possible throughthe vision and generosity of a corporate sponsor who agrees to bear the book’s productionexpenses and host the book on its Web site for the benefit of its Web site visitors.It should be pointed out that the free nature of these publications does not in any way diminishtheir quality. Without reservation, I can tell you that the book that you’re now reading is theequivalent of any similar printed book you might find at your local bookstorewith the notableexception that it won’t cost you $30 to $80. The Realtimepublishers publishing model alsoprovides other significant benefits. For example, the electronic nature of this book makesactivities such as chapter updates and additions or the release of a new edition possible in a farshorter timeframe than is the case with conventional printed books. Because we publish our titlesin “real-time”that is, as chapters are written or revised by the authoryou benefit fromreceiving the information immediately rather than having to wait months or years to receive acomplete product.Finally, I’d like to note that our books are by no means paid advertisements for the sponsor.Realtimepublishers is an independent publishing company and maintains, by written agreementwith the sponsor, 100 percent editorial control over the content of our titles. It is my opinion thatthis system of content delivery not only is of immeasurable value to readers but also will hold asignificant place in the future of publishing.As the founder of Realtimepublishers, my
raison d’être
is to create “dream team” projectsthatis, to locate and work only with the industry’s leading authors and sponsors, and publish booksthat help readers do their everyday jobs. To that end, I encourage and welcome your feedback onthis or any other book in the Realtimepublishers.com series. If you would like to submit acomment, question, or suggestion, please send an email tofeedback@realtimepublishers.com,leave feedback on our Web site athttp://www.realtimepublishers.com, or call us at 800-509-0532.Thanks for reading, and enjoy!Sean DailyFounder & CTORealtimepublishers.com, Inc.
