One man show?[edit]

Are there any good references to suggest that this publisher is anything other than a one-man show? From the packt site, the only name mentioned is David Barnes, and he identifies himself variously as aquisition editor, series editor, author relationship manager and so on. His blog is also prominently featured on each of packt's pages. True there are several book reviews on slashdot, but it seems they're all from "Michael J. Ross" and submitted to slashdot after he had received a promo copy of the book from packt. Not really an independent source. Thrapper (talk) 08:38, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

It's not. The guy who founded it, his son goes to my school, and he came and did a talk about it last year. There's at least 5 employees. Joemalt1832 (talk) 18:59, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

I am David Barnes of Packt Publishing and believe me if I was running the whole show I'd never stop bragging about it. Packt now employs about 200 people spread between Birmingham, UK and Mumbai, India. -- David Barnes, 11/Sep/2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.166.189.137 (talk) 09:53, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
