Two Degrees of Separation: I find this story interesting. You may or may not. Giles Bowkett (above) seems to like my book, and his blog states that he was introduced to it by Clinton R. Nixon at OSCON. As it turns out, Mr. Nixon and I have a mutual friend in D. Vincent Baker, who I had just given a copy of my book to. I assumed that Vincent had recommended the book to Clinton, and emailed him to thank him for that. But I was mistaken - Clinton had discovered the book independently. I'm very pleased that Clinton found value in the book enough to suggest it to others, and thank him for that.
