The customers apparently don't realize how easy it is to make books look
great and how hard it is to make them timely, accurate, and complete.

I remember thinking, about 12 years ago when all this DTP stuff started, how
much beautifully produced trash I was seeing.

It's gotten better, but we're still on the steep part of the communications
media improvement curve. Things will eventually slow down, and we'll stop
"seeing" the media and be able to focus on the content again. ...RM
