Back in November of 2007 I came across jonson
about Geoff Manaugh
’s blog post
on a photographer named Shaun O’Boyle
. I really liked the photographs, and sometimes my job allows me to develop a book. So I did. Kind of about that link. I asked Geoff Manaugh to write the intro
to the book, and he said yes, and then he surprisingly cited
an unrelated Metafilter comment
in the essay he submitted.

So, yeah, thanks for the link. The book's just been published. I hope the book does well, and if it does, thanks to the site for help making it happen. I think it would be accurate to say that this book wouldn’t have happened without you. Though it’s a little weird that all the key figures are no longer members. Except me, of course. Jessamyn helped me get cimborg
’s permission to use the quote in the book, and at the time I offered him a gratis copy of the book in exchange for the permission. But alas, he’s no longer available through the site to get an address from. If you know who or where he is, let him know that the offer still stands. I've obtained jonson's email and have sent the offer of a free book to him as well. Thanks!
