Signs of the Great Refusal is published!

Ever wonder what its like to go through the book publishing process? The phrase that immediately comes to mind is "managed complexity." A 456 page manuscript is complex. Having been involved with a lot of software development in the past, the trajectory is a lot like the curve of new "bug reports" in the development of a releasable build. For a long period of time, in the middle of the process, you see bug reports being opened at a much faster rate than they are being closed. Then, under the guidance of the team leader (editor) the build begins to stabilize, and bugs are being fixed faster than new one are being reported. Eventually, the reports trend asymtotically toward zero, and the lead decides its time to release!
