    First of all, a big thanks to all the team for wonikrg so hard to produce such a remarkable work. I do understand Nathan’s logic when he explained why this work had to be done in print form, but as our lives keep getting more and more digital, I’d like to see more software tools to enhance the experience for the book owners. These tools could be as simple as a better index than the PDF file to find recipes and techniques in the books via an intelligent search system, cross referencing and even pointers to external web sites.Eventually, an app for the multiple mobile devices out there should also be available as a complement to the books. This isn’t something new. An excellent example is the best seller book The Magic of Reality from Oxford Evolutionary Biologist Richard Dawkins, a remarkable work to introduce young people to science and critical thinking. As good as the book is, they really nailed it with the complementary iPad app which greatly enhances the experience via experiments, animations and advanced graphics.Also, as good as WordPress is (I use it myself), the web site needs some serious re-design with focus on usability. Keep up the great work and may 2012 be another milestone year for you guys.
