I've been musing about putting together a book of photos or something and have been experimenting with various printing services like Lulu. Recently Carl Malamud pushed me to go forward with this idea. I decided that instead of waiting getting some sort of final book thing, I'd start by just posting Flickr portraits on this blog and writing blurbs about the people in a new "people" category on my blog.
Later, I can decide whether this ends up in something worthy of a book. I've been contributing my photos to people's Wikipedia entries, but I think this form allows me to be a bit more personal about what I can say about the people and provides the reader with the PoV that is absent by design in Wikipedia.
Also, if I do ever end up putting together a book, I might include things the comments so feel free to post things you think might be good to add on that person's page. Also, I guarantee that the book will be CC BY licensed and available for download as well. Of course it will be available here as it unfolds.
Hopefully, this new project will help me get back into tending for my blog. ;-)
