There is still a chance to provide input on the title of the book! I thought it was nearly published!

By the way, what is the status of the book?

Anon:

Book is done; we’re just fixing typos, cleaning up the index, and adding a few homework problems. Realistically I think the title is set, but I thought it would be fun to consider alternatives. The physical book should be out in a few months, or however long it takes Cambridge University Press to do that sort of thing.

We should not be talking about “the title,” but instead think of each copy’s title as a draw from a distribution of titles, and try to describe that distribution.

I hope Dan Simpson working on a mixtape for this book.

At this point, we have quite a list of possible titles — but describing the distribution of titles — that’s another story. (I suppose we could do it by vote?)
