Textbook remix

This is super cool, both in content and process: Python for Informatics is a new textbook that Chuck Severance, a professor at the University of Michigan, compiled in eleven days. It’s based on an existing Python textbook that was released under a Creative Commons license; Severance culled, sharpened, and extended it.

And if you were one of Severance’s students in Ann Arbor, you could get a physical copy printed on the university library’s Espresso book machine.

I find every part of this scenario really exciting. It’s like the pieces are all starting to click into place.
