Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

Susie just signed to do her second book (actually fourth, if you count co-author gigs).  It’s going to be another book for Wiley: BitTorrent for Dummies.

BitTorrent is two things: a method for transfering large files efficiently to many people at once, and a the name of a program that uses this method.  BitTorrent is especially good at allowing someone to “publish” a really big file—an application, a video, a large chunk of data—and deliver it to thousands or even millions of people without having enormous bandwidth costs.  So, while some people use it for digital piracy, others are already using it for education, for news reporting, or for distributing important software updates.

Susie’s blogging book was the first to talk about business blogging, but wasn’t the first blogging book. This time, she’s doing the very first book announced on this subject of BitTorrent.  Bleeding edge!

The book is already listed at Amazon, but you can’t order it yet.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
