Apache Security in Japanese!

June 26, 2006

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:

  1. It takes a lot of time (time better spent building Thinking Stone into a stronger business).
  2. It's lonesome (but this can be dealt with by finding someone to co-author the book with me.
  3. 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.)
