Hi all,

I just updated the book's official web site to reflect the new table
of contents, title, and cover design.

http://lifehackerbook.com/

I have a few ideas of ways I'd like to make the site more useful:
like adding the ability to sort hacks by operating system, user skill
level, and cost. What else? Let me know what you think.

Best,
Gina

PS I also just updated the name of this Google group, its icon, and
design as well to reflect the new book's information (instead of just
Lifehacker 2.0).

[1 QUESTION]
1) is the website updated with content from the new book?

[2 COMMENTS]
2) I think sorting by operating system is a good idea.

3) I think sorting by user skill level and/or cost is a bad idea and
would only complicate the web site.

Yes--well, mostly. I've got more links and notes to add, but the new
chapters are all there.

Excellent.

Fair point... I was thinking about ditching cost entirely, and just
going with skill level. But maybe just operating system... I don't
want to complicate things, but I do want to show that the book is
meant to have something for everyone.

Thanks. :)

Hmm. IMHO, skill level is as important as operating system. Could there be a way to do both? Perhaps, some kind of "Sort by..." function?
