Apache Security in Japanese!
My book was translated to Japanese and published by O'Reilly Japan! This is, apparently, old news, as they did it back in 2005, but I only found out about it from the three-monthly royalties statement I received in April.
While we are on the subject of writing, I am starting to get the itch again. There are two or three topics I would like to explore further. Topics such as web application firewalls and ModSecurity, web application security, and application security patterns. On the other hand, I have a few compelling reasons against writing another book:
- It takes a lot of time (time better spent building Thinking Stone into a stronger business).
- It's lonesome (but this can be dealt with by finding someone to co-author the book with me.
- My hands and arms haven't fully recovered from the first book. (This one is the most compelling reason of all - I barely managed to finish Apache Security in the first place. If you are using keyboard extensively make sure to read about RSI and always keep Workrave active.)
