Congratulations To Joanne Jacobs!

Joanne Jacobs left her “well-paid, high-status, no-heavy-lifting job as a San Jose Mercury News columnist and editorial writer to write a book on a start-up charter school” back in early 2001. Yesterday she announced that she now has a publisher for the book–and thus needs to finish the project!

Joanne was one of several high-profile bloggers gracious enough to let me interview them for an article on weblogs shortly before deciding to start a blog of my own, and I’m sure her new book will be a knockout.
