Ted, if I may interject, I suggest you're getting your media 
priorities a bit mixed up. Publishing these days does not necessarily 
involve producing a book. If someone wants a hard copy, then you run 
them off on an 'on demand' basis at a reasonable price.

Your main audience is already here, waiting for the Tedishi's pearls 
of wisdom. I'm looking forward to the bit on astral travel... :-) Do 
I use a tripod or a monopod, and what about the 'swishy pan'? :-)

Nathan's already made a sensible and useful first step in gathering 
the sayings of Ted together.

There's nothing stopping you publishing these in your own blog, and 
I'm sure Nathan would give you a few pointers, judging by his own 
excellent effort and his own area of expertise.

Obviously it would be helpful to include samples of your work to 
illustrate the very relevant points you make.

Just a thought.
