Damn.  Cameni's published in a book before I am, got a back-cover blurb, and has screenshots contained within.

I've been writing for 20 years, and he's already ahead of me :(.  

:D Congratulations.  May have to pick that one up to see if I can actually understand some of the processes.  The sample chapter was actually pretty straight-forward!

I might actually take a look at this book, even though alot of what you talked about in the blog post was well over my head...
