The first edition of my book Sustainable Web Ecosystem Design is at nearly 30,000 downloads. It’s great to see people interested in this topic.

The book was written for an audience of undergraduate students in the field of information science and design and development of web technology, and also for early but disciplined professionals in the field of web technology, building web sites, and applications. It is part of the Springer Briefs in Computer Science series.

If you register for an account on the SpringerLink website, you’ll be able to download chapters and/or the entire book at no cost. For more of my work, visit Greg O’Toole’s main site, otoole.info.
