An experiment in open-source textbooks 2

In an earlier post, I described how I'm working on an open source textbook about Intelligent Information Systems.

While progress has been slower than I would have liked (mainly due to my relocating permanently to my native New Zealand), I have been able to digest the suggestions made in the comments on my previous post. As a result, I've made the second outline of this textbook available here.

I've also investigated several different licensing schemes, and it looks like I'll be going with one of the Creative Commons licenses. I'm looking at making the LaTeX source and PDF files freely available online, while retaining the print rights.

Any comments on the outline, or my licensing plan, will be gratefully received!
