Manning released some preview chapters for Ajax in Action today. Chapter 4: The page as an application and Chapter 9: Dyanmic Double Combo are available now. It’s either this or Pragmatic AJAX and with Ben Gailbraith and Dion Almaer of the Ajaxian this book should rock. “Ship It!”: http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/prj/index.html and Agile Web Development with Rails are fantastic. I think I’ll stick with the Pragmatic books for now.
Toronto has an interesting looking company, Enablr with 2 great looking services: Transcribr and Stenographr . I am guessing that this is just a frontend to human-enabled/wetware-enabled podcast transcription services. But a great idea, hats off to Ken , AJ and Andrew .
