    If it weren't for that whole copyright issue, it would be really cool if
    someone could go through the book and make a changed version which at
    least notes where something is no longer true, or achieved a better way.
    (Even if it didn't cover all the functionality.)

    Hrm...I wonder if there would be any legal trouble with writing up
    addendums to each page/section, and hosting them framed separately, with
    clear notices that the addenda were NOT part of the original.

    Any thoughts on this? If this seems legally not disastrous, I would be
    willing to do the initial work of splitting the book up into more
    manageable chunks than the currently-long HTML pages, framing them out,
    and linking each to a Wiki page on someone's existing Wiki.

    Does this sound feasible?

    I have prelimnary approval of Dave Thomas (one of the authors, not the
    now-dead Wendy's founder) to go ahead on this :)

    Look for a call to arms soonish to help populate changes.

    The book that are available now are excellent - easy to follow, have good
    tutorials yet technical enough to explain the nuts-and-bolts of Ruby
    internals, and fun to read. Perhaps all those author need to do is to update
    their book to comply with version 1.8 or 1.9 or perhaps 2.0(Matz, perhaps
    your involvement is crucial for the future of Ruby). I'm sure they can
    easily find publishers as Ruby is becoming the favorite scripting language.
