A final reminder for our open textbook meeting later today. Details from the wiki page:
This will be an online meeting for anyone interested in open textbooks – including students, educators, authors, activists, funders, policy makers, distributors and publishers.
The event will be an opportunity for people who work in this area to present projects, to solicit for feedback, to find collaborators, to propose projects and to keep abreast of new developments. If this is helpful and if there is enough demand, we hope to host more meetings on a regular basis.
The meeting will take place at 1000 PST, 1800 BST or 1900 CEST on Monday 29th September. It will be hosted on the #okfn IRC channel at oftc.net.
If you would like to participate you can connect using an IRC client or using a web-based service such as Mibbit (click here to join the channel via Mibbit).

will try to attend
I am interested but so abysmally inept at wiki that I don’t know how to “add [my] name to the list and even what is going to happen to this message
Sorry. Been very absent-minded, these past few days. Hadn’t scheduled this in Gcal.
Very interesting discussion, thanks to everyone that participated.
Here is a Google Calendar with the planned schedule, please let me know if there are any issues with the timezone: http://tinyurl.com/4ypau3
Nice. There are a lot of calculus books here which will help you improve. They are available for download at Askdiana.net. A searchable database for PDF files and preview them before downloading.
