New book on language variation infrastructure

Dear colleagues,

You may want to learn about the book "Language Variation Infrastructure. Papers on selected projects" (2011) based on some talks from Workshop on research infrastructure for linguistic variation (RiLiVS) arranged at the University of Oslo. I think most of you will find the papers interesting.
