O’Reilly’s Safari Books Online has just announced a new service called Rough Cuts that gives you early access to content on cutting-edge technologies months before it’s published. Rough Cuts allows you to purchase work-in-progress manuscripts of selected titles. You’ll even have the chance to shape the final product by sending feedback to the author and editors. The beta version just debuted with four works-in-progress covering Ajax, Ruby, and Flickr. A FAQ is available as well.
