Response to: Some objective, empirical evidence
Great points, Haywood. You're right that book sales and job postings may not be in step, and the fact that there's an increase in interest in other languages by book buyers is just one data point. We're actually trying to do some studies now on the relationship between job postings and book sales. This topic is very interesting to us as well, because, as you say, we make most of our money by selling books. But I want to be clear that we don't have any agenda here -- we're an equal opportunity promoter when it comes to technology.
