Hi all,


FYI,  the entire contents of Wikipedia: The Missing Manual is now available for free online for editing and updating just like any other Wikipedia entry. 

Author John Broughton, a registered editor at Wikipedia since 2005 with more than 20,000 edits under his belt, says he's looking forward to seeing what changes and improvements his fellow Wikipedians will make to his book. The book resides in the site's Help area. 

Take a look for yourself and learn more about this online publishing experiment.
