Technical publisher O’Reilly is having an e-book sale today to benefit Japan. All of the publisher’s books are on sale for 50% off, and O’Reilly will be donating all revenues, less author royalties, to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

If you’re actually donating money directly, I’ve been told that Japan’s disaster relief now has just about all the money it needs, and it’s better to make a donation to places that can make a difference in more parts of the world, like Doctors Without Borders. But on the other hand, 50% off DRM-free O’Reilly e-books would be a great deal even without knowing your money’s going to a good cause.
