Geeks With Blogs
David Douglass .NET on My Mind

The folks at O'Reilly put out a call for people to blog about their favorite free and open source utilities, which I responded to.  I really wasn't expecting much from this beyond a blip in blog traffic.  But, as a thank you, O'Reilly has given one me one of their books.

We have a lot to thank O'Reilly for; they play a couple of vital roles for the computing community.  Their books on HTML, DHTML, and JavaScript are a sort of industry standard for people doing web development.  They are the books to have at your side.

The other role is filling gaps in technical coverage.  Of course vendors like Microsoft and Oracle will write about their products.  But it's O'Reilly that provides excellent coverage for HTTP, XML, Unicode, regular expressions, and other vendor neutral technologies.

I tip my hat to everybody at O'Reilly!
