Notable![edit]

I'm removing the notability query. SBO is a notable ebook source, and I don't know if you've noticed, but eBooks are rather hot right now as a topic ... IMO, with the new newsworthiness of anything to do with ebook commerce, just about any well-established and well-known ebook outlet is now pretty much notable by default. People expect to be able to look these companies up on Wikipedia and find out about them. ErkDemon (talk) 03:28, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

I work with Safari Books Online's PR firm and noticed that some of the information on the Wikipedia page isn't completely up to date. Their Web site (http://www.safaribooksonline.com) contains the latest information, and I'm including the boilerplate text that we use below because it might provide material to help revise the page:

Safari Books Online (www.safaribooksonline.com) is an on-demand digital library that delivers expert content in both book and video form from the world's leading authors in technology and business. Technology professionals, software developers, Web designers, and business and creative professionals use Safari Books Online as their primary resource for research, problem solving, learning and certification training. Safari Books Online offers a range of product mixes and pricing programs for organizations, government agencies and individuals. Subscribers have access to thousands of books, training videos and prepublication manuscripts in one fully searchable database from publishers like Cisco Press, Prentice Hall Professional, O'Reilly Media, Addison Wesley Professional, Microsoft Press, Sams, Que, Peachpit Press, John Wiley & Sons, Elsevier, IBM Press, Adobe Press, Sun Microsystems Press, FT Press, Wharton School Publishing, Apress, Manning, New Riders, Apple Certified, Course Technology, Splash Media and dozens more.

Additionally, Creative Edge (http://www.creativeedge.com) might be worth mentioning since it's a service of Safari Books Online.

Thanks for your consideration!

The above information comes from a primary source, and therefore may only be used to make descriptive statements that can be verified by any educated person without specialist knowledge. The statements provided are not simple facts, but opinions. That link also says, Do not make analytic, synthetic, interpretive, explanatory, or evaluative claims about material found in a primary source. Therefore, they would require independent reliable sources to verify them.
For example, to add the fact that Web designers use these books, we would need something like a reference to "Web designers Magazine" which said that they used this site.
The information given does not conform to a neutral point of view - it makes claims about the organization that cannot be independently verified.  Chzz  ►  05:32, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
