Response to: Good Points, but what about Baen?

You know, I keep meaning to get together with Jim Baen when I'm next in NY. I agree that they are a pioneer in this space. And unlike many O'Reilly books, science fiction isn't driven by some external force (i.e. I REALLY need to find out how to make FOO work, so is there a book on Foo?) but solely by marketing, so my thesis applies even more strongly over there.
