comment Will e-books prevent books from going out of print (and rights from reverting)?
I find it interesting that you bring up O'Reilly here, as they have a reputation for being extremely flexible with authors. I've even seen them publish books that are also available under a Creative Commons license.

comment Do multimedia-objects work well in electronical publishings of fictional writing?
Avid readers generally read faster than a video or audio clip would present whatever they are meant to present, so even if working perfectly these would be considered by most annoying and disruptive. Also, many of us read to escape the sensory noise of our overly electronic world: if we wanted that stuff we would watch TV or Youtube or listen to the radio!

comment What is the key reference documentation and how should I cite BASH?
@David: What exactly are you citing? The source code, the man page, something else?

comment What is the key reference documentation and how should I cite BASH?
@neilfein BASH stands for "Bourne Again SHell", the successor to sh (the Bourne shell). It is the most common of the Linux shell environments, but not the only one.

comment Can I self-publish, and how much would it cost?
So are you looking for marketing, rather than self-publishing? I'm not clear on exactly what services you require.

comment The polymath's dilemma…?
@Jakub Hampl: The main character has had to learn: how to repair water-powered machinery, some politics, to grow food, to fix a derelict space vessel, the history of his colony (not the one he was taught in school), leadership skills, how to build a bomb, wilderness survival, and much more -- it's the logical result of being in a family that just moved from a clean, modern, and tightly controlled colony to its long-abandoned predecessor. There will probably be more. When has he picked up too many skills or interests for most readers to find him realistic and identify with him?
