||Piracy is Progressive Taxation, and Other Thoughts on the Evolution of Online Distribution|
|Subject:||Compare to Asimov --|
Great essay ! I think you had Isaac Asimov whispering in your ear ! Your projection of current models into the future rings true. The transition is happening so quickly that entrenched publishers who don't have a progressive outlook are doomed. I made numerous notes (well, cut & pasted url's) to follow up on many of the references you made.
Thanks for a thorough analysis as opposed to a "headline"... I think one of the current drawbacks to the web publishing model is that people tend not to read more than 1 (screen) page of "news" before bailing out.
