Price gouging
Originally catalogued at $15.95, this book is now listed at $17.95.
You're paying a lot of extra money for fancy, unnecessary packaging--a
slipcase and a hidden wire binding. All this to tell you that TCI
should be spelled "TCI"?

No I have not even heard of it. I would like to hear of it however,
any info like maybe an ISBN? Did Nicholas Negroponte have anything to
do with this?
