Statistics about the Unofficial Internet Booklist
I publish a free document called the Unofficial Internet Booklist. It is, as far as I know,
the most extensive bibliography of books about the Internet. I just released a new
edition of the booklist in order to procrastinate doing real work, so here are some
statistics about this sickeningly huge bibliography.
Oh, by the way, the booklist is posted twice monthly- -on the 5th and 19th of each month- -to
the Usenet newsgroups alt.internet.services and misc.books.technical.
You can receive it via anonymous FTP from rtfm.mit.edu:/pub/usenet/news.answers/internet-services/book-list
