An audio interview with Gary Cornell from APress

I had the pleasure of talking with Gary Cornell, co-founder of tech book publisher APress this morning.  His company's been very good to me over the years, so this was a real treat to talk to a fellow programmer and technology writer.

Gary shared his thoughts on the upcoming release of .NET 2.0, some of the challenges of the Wrox acquisition, and working in the publishing business.  It's a very intresting talk if you're into tech writing/reading (~12 minutes, 5.8MB).

The audio quality leaves a lot to be desired, but good interview. I'm a little disappointed with my book's marketing (the writing process was fine), but I like that Apress "gets it" from top to bottom.

Was fun doing, thanks. By the way Jeff you should do your next book with us - it was perhaps unclear that we weren't the publisher in your post!

Real interesting interview. I think it would be great if you can do some more of these developer centric type podcast interviews but as you mentioned your PodCast isn't just for the devs in the crowd.

Hi Scott,

Probably just a temporary glitch...I worked for me just now.
