I thought you had stepped away from Autospeed, but I see you're still listed as Editor there.

I guess I've got some catching up to do.

No, AutoSpeed finished about 2 years ago (content is still up, but no content being added).

I write books now instead - https://www.amazon.com/Julian-Edgar/e/B00C3MRYN4

Can't you write your own content?

Aerohead, a friend (who claims to be a professor) says that textbooks are as exciting as the dictionary, and has considered writing his own. Have you ever (considered) writing your own text? Maybe with pop-ups?

My role in AutoSpeed was a paid job. When the company that owns AutoSpeed decided that revenue was insufficient, that job disappeared. I've no complaints - it was a great gig for 18 years.

Now I write books. They're all aimed to normal car modifiers, so they're not really textbooks.

I neither. It's a great resource.

I'm enjoying the four videos you put up on Youtube (I also hit the first post and see that the history with Autospeed was explained there).

Scott Adams is promoting something he is a co-founder of called WhenHub. It has a variety of functions (scheduling, etc.) but ones you might find interesting are WhenHub Interface or Whencasts.

The former allows you to make yourself available for one-on-one tutoring, the latter pushes webcast to various platforms (probably including Youtube).

I don't know much about it but it appears an alternative to the book publishing industry, maybe you owe yourself some due diligence?

Full disclosure, another project Scott Adams is promoting, Blight Authority, seems to have stalled out at the end of the runway.
