Book Market As Technology Trend Indicator

Tim O'Reilly posted some analysis and visualizations of book sales data on his website. It analyzed book sales trend in several dimensions. Java is shown on a steady downward trend. On the other hand C# is clearly gaining share. The idea is the state of book market would be a technology trend indicator. Of course this is more likely to be a trailing indicator. Idea has to be mature enough before it can turned into a book. And it would takes months for it to be published and adopted in the mass market. Nevertheless it gives a good picture what people are really buying into.
