It's right here. Excellent. I've been a big fan of him for a long time. He's the reason I started doing the whole "web + database = application" thing several years back. I picked up a copy of his excellent Database Backed Web Sites book and it flipped the light on in my brain. Everything just clicked.
Phil is very smart, funny, and has a great writing style. I highly recommend his books and (probably) his weblog.

Phil Greenspun should talk about computers, web and databases. Not about geographicals concepts he doesn't understand. I love your blog Jeremy. I don't like his.
The book is rated with 5 stars, that's fine, but it is rather old (and seems to be out of print). Makes it sense to read such a book even so it's nearly 6 years old?
I'd bet thta 80% of the book is still relevant today, FWIW.
