Ce se intampla daca il amestecam pe Thomas Friedman cu Norman Spinrad plus Bruce Sterling la care adaugam web2.0, blogging si podcasturi, new economy si politica din belsug, dupa care presaram cu Creative Commons dupa gust? Il obtinem pe Cory Doctorow. Iar daca nu va place literatura speculativa, nu-i bai: e unul din oamenii de la boing-boing.com
Uite chestia asta m-a uns la suflet:
I believe that we live in an era where anything that can be expressed as bits will be. I believe that bits exist to be copied. Therefore, I believe that any business-model that depends on your bits not being copied is just dumb, and that lawmakers who try to prop these up are like governments that sink fortunes into protecting people who insist on living on the sides of active volcanoes. Me, Iâ€™m looking to find ways to use copying to make more money and itâ€™s working: enlisting my readers as evangelists for my work and giving them free ebooks to distribute sells more books. As Tim Oâ€™Reilly says, my problem isnâ€™t piracy, itâ€™s obscurity. Best of all, giving away ebooks gives me lots of key insights into how to make money without restricting the copying of bits. Itâ€™s a win-win situation.
Azi-maine scriu si de cartea lui aparuta in romaneste.
