o'reilly : new year, new you

O'Reilly Media is offering an opportunity to win a wish list. The list cannot total more than $500 (and, of course, contain only things in their catalog). Contest aside - I'd probably buy half of these in the long run anyway - it's an interesting exercise to consider what would make the cut. Here's what I came up with:

Ajax Design Patterns
Michael Mahemoff

Algorithms in a Nutshell,
George Heineman, Gary Pollice, and Stanely Selkow

The Art of Capacity Planning: Scaling Web resources
John Allspaw

The Art of Concurrency: A Thread Monkey's Guide to Writing Parallel Applications,
Clay Breshears

Database in Depth: Relational Theory for Practitioners
C.J. Date

Enterprise SOA: Designing IT for Business Innovation
Dan Woods and Thomas Mattern

Java Database Best Practices
George Reese

Masterminds of Programming: Conversations with the Creators of Major Programming Languages

Regular Expressions Cookbook

REST in Practice: Hypermedia and Systems Architecture

Statistics in a Nutshell: A Quick Desktop Reference
