I sent out an email today to everyone who'd previously purchased Designing Hypermedia APIs. Here's the text:
Hey there, First of all, I want to apologize for sending you an email. I try to keep these to a minimum. But this one is important. I haven't been uploading new content lately for a few reasons. Holidays are complicated, I wasn't feeling inspired... but this is the real reason: I've totally moved the site to something different. I just updated it, so the DNS might need an update, but http://www.designinghypermediaapis.com/ is all-new. Here's the deal: 1. Gone is logging in and reading it online. PDF/ePUB/MOBI now. 2. Because you purchased a copy before, you get the big bundle. Thank you for your support over the last year. 3. You'll be getting another email with a link to download the files. When I send an update, you'll get a new email with a new link. 4. The current written content is basically an appendix: I'm going to be writing a more traditional book, from start to finish. It'll walk you through building an application, both client and server. 5. I want this to be of the highest quality, so I'm not going to commit to a schedule. If you aren't a part of the mailing list, we're doing a reading club over the next few months, "Building Hypermedia APIs with HTML5 and Node." You can join by emailing email@example.com. Thank you once again for your support of this project, I really appreciate it. As always, any and all feedback welcome: I bet I can do some nicer formatting of the PDF/ePUB/MOBI now that I have them generating.
